Celtic Glory

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Cornwall is the land of saints. Many place names still retain a reference to the Celtic saint who lived there and established a praying community. Likewise, place names show evidence of holy places by being prefaced by Lan - Landreath, Lansallos, Lanteglos, Lantyan. Many came from Ireland and Wales to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the communities living in Cornwall. Many holy wells remain and stories of the miracles performed by the saints when they lived.
