The church, largely restored in the late 19th century is worthy of a visit
to see the decorated organ pipes and many other features
including the 15th century stained glass windows

Petroc window

One of the beautiful stained glass windows, this one is Victorian
the colours still extraordinarily vibrant today. It is in the Lady Chapel
and is in memory of Charles Moase of Petrockstowe and his wife
who travelled to New Jersey where they both remained
