Search St Ervan Churchyard:

The church of St Ervan is almost at the end of a country lane, with a little surrounding hamlet. It is mentioned in John Betjeman's poem, 'Summoned by Bells', and the medieval bell he describes can be seen inside at the foot of the tower.The cruciform building dates to the 13th and 14th centuries, and was little altered until Victorian times. Much of the furnishing removed then has since been restored, including the Georgian pulpit. The tower was partially demolished in the 1880s, and only re-roofed in 1956. The chancel twists noticeably to the south. Most of the churchyard memorials are local slate, with shallow-etched lettering which has become hard to read. There are fine memorials in both slate and marble inside the church.
