St Mylor, Mylor Harbour, Cornwall
(Click on an image for a larger version)
St Mylor was a Breton saint who, in England, was venerated particularly in Wiltshire where he was titular of Amesbury Abbey, which claimed his relics.
This was one of the best finds of the holiday and was spotted by our friend David who had kindly given up a day to show us some of the most interesting churches of west Cornwall. The vessel was lost in 1814 in a SE gale in Carrick Roads, Falmouth. This transport ship was carrying sick or soldiers from Wellington's army plus a few French POWs. A total of 369 people were killed.
