General view of St Piran's Oratory with railings, Perranzabuloe, Cornwall. 1905 Featured 28 Jan 2019 Print

General view of St Piran's Oratory with railings, Perranzabuloe, Cornwall. 1905

A view of the Oratory exposed in the dunes and surrounded by the Victorian railings. Taken before the excavations of 1910. Two men and a woman stand outside the railings and a young woman is seated inside. St Piran's Oratory survives as an early Christian chapel with all four walls standing. It represents the supposed site where St Piran, an Irish saint came ashore and established a Christian centre of worship in the sixth or seventh centuries AD. The site has a documented entry in the Domesday book. There is a small nave, chancel and stone bench around much of the interior plus a cemetery. Situated on Penhale Sands, east of Perranporth, the Oratory has been subject to blown sands over the years. Excavations were carried out in 1835 and 1843 and then railings were erected around the site in the 1890s. In 1910 it was re-excavated and a concrete 'preserving structure' constructed over it. A large number of burials were uncovered during the works. The concrete shell was largely demolished in 1980 and the chapel reburied. The site was re-excavated in 2014-2015. Photographer: Unknown
