Sanctuaries by the Sea

All around the coast of Cornwall you will come across churches with maritime connections. Many of them have towers used as daymarks by sailors and fishermen to guide them safely back to harbour, others will be the resting place of those taken by the sea.  They have all been and continue to be a place of sanctuary, somewhere to shelter from the storm, be it the westerly winds or the troubles in your life.

Here's a selection of religious sites going around the coast from the far north to the south eastern corner.
