Mevagissey is a picturesque, unique 14th Century fishing village located on the South Cornwall Coast. St Peter’s church, dating to the 10th century, offers a quiet respite from the often busy harbor and is located on the northern edge of the town. St Peter’s church features a characteristic saddleback tower roof and is surrounded by an ancient graveyard. The church is on the northern edge of the town away from the harbor. Notable historic items to see include the 14th-century window in the transept; a slate memorial to Lewes Dart of Pentewan (1632) and a monument to Otwell Hill (1617). The church today still serves the congregation of Mevagissey as part of the Church of England.
