lancet in its east wall and a monopitched roof, and a gabled vestry added
on its north side and coupled with the transept, the windows in the gables
of these with hoodmoulds. Interior: wagon roof with large queen-post roof
trusses which are supported on corbelled wallposts with arch-bracing to the
tie-beams and have slender intermediate posts and ogival passing braces;
2-centred chancel arch and window surrounds all of plain rubble (suggesting
former plaster covering); 2-centred double-chamfered arches to transept,
vestry and chapel, and over that to the transept, remains of the head of
the window which the transept replaced; over south doorway, a blocked
window, and attached to this a hatchment with motto "NEC TIMEO NEC

vestry; in south chapel, an altar stone of c.1000-1050 with inscription
"Aegured" and rectilinear pattern enclosed by T-fret border; C15 font from
Camborne church, with 4 angels holding shields. Churchyard wall and
gateway: attached to vestry and transept on north side, returning
southwards round the west end and then eastwards to the corner of the
porch. Coursed squared rubble with granite ashlar piers and coping,
wrought-iron gates. The low wall has chamfered coping ; the gateway on
the north side has tall square monolithic piers with cross-gabled caps, and
the gates each have 2 panels of scrolls and a cross on the top rail; there
are matching piers to left and right and at both corners of the west end,
and a simpler gateway opposite the nave. History: principal building of
