Our Churches

Egloshayle Church

Egloshayle Road, Wadebridge PL27 6AD

Dedicated to St Petroc, but known locally as Egloshayle Church, the name of the ancient village in which it is situated; it is largely medieval in construction. It is situated on the road which runs besides the river, facing across to the town of Wadebridge of which Egloshayle village has become part. The River Camel is still tidal here and Egloshayle means ‘church on the shore’. There are eight fine bells in the 82′ tower and the church has a strong bell-ringing tradition. In past centuries the church had strong connections with the Molesworth-St Aubyn family of Pencarrow.

The church is open daily from 10am – 4pm

St Conan

Washaway, Wadebridge PL30 3AD

This small, attractive church is situated on the edge of the Pencarrow Estate and can be found on the Wadebridge to Bodmin road, set back amongst the trees. Built a century ago, its overall dimensions only just exceed 60′ by 20′, with seating claimed to be for about 80 – but at a squeeze! The pulpit is 16th century, and it is said to have been used by Martin Luther. Surprisingly the font, of celtic origin, is probably the oldest in England.
