Lanherne, a manor house belonging to Lord and Lady Arundell of Wardour, was given to the Carmelite order in 1794 for the foundation of the first Carmelite Convent in England. The chapel, dedicated to St Joseph and St Anne, is the only part of the building open to the public, and serves as the Roman Catholic parish church of St Mawgan-in-Pydar. The Sisters and their chaplains were buried in the little convent burial ground at the chapel door, which is dominated by the tower of the Anglican Parish Church next door.
The Convent of St Joseph and St Anne merged with a London Carmelite convent in the early 2000s; a Franciscan order now uses Lanherne. A separate Roman Catholic cemetery (lay) adjoins the convent wall.
