ADVANTAGES

Non" - straddles the fairly busy B3359 to . Witrh a couple of exceptions, there is little of interest to be found withinthe village. The first exception is the church, perched high on whatmay be an ancient site. Outside the churchyard, a tiny patch of green,proclaiming itself to be the "village green", bears a modern Cornish Cross,celebrating the millennium, as does a clock on the southern face of thetower. Due to its dour exterior, I had little expectation of theinterior of the church. I was pleasantly surprised, thanks to theTrelawney Chapel, filled with memorials to the famous local family fromTrelawne. Trelawneys had strong royal and church connections, countinga Bishop and a Governor of Jamaica among their number - as well as a Caribbeanpirate. My favourite Trelawney epitaph is that to Edward Trelawney: "Here lyes an honest lawyer, wot you wat, a thing for all the world towonder at." Also noteworthy are a Buller memorial and several moreTrelawney memorials. As you enter, a striking and unusual stainedglass window faces you. Nearby is a damaged Cornish Cross. At the other end of the village is the excellent Jubilee Inn, where I enjoyedan excellent doorstep bacon sandwich. A mile or so to the south-eastis Trelawne, once home to the Trelawneys. Dour looking, it is ina sad state, its grounds now occupied by a large holiday park.
