Cornwall is dotted with sites associated with the Celtic Christians. Many towns, villages and hamlets bear the names of saints such as St Mewan, St Austell, Gorran Haven, St Kew and others indicate the Celtic Christian connection by beginning with 'Lan'. 'Lan' in Cornish is 'holy place'. So Lanteglos, is 'the holy church'; Landreath is 'the holy place on the sands. It's fascinating travelling throughout the county and seeing the legacy left behind by these Christians. They must have had a huge impact on the region during their time. You stumble across Celtic crosses on roadsides or crossroads, holy wells hidden in fields and almost forgotten, as well as circular enclosed churchyards indicating a previous Celtic prayer community. The signs are all there, just sometimes they need to be searched for and the stories rediscovered. Just like Ireland, Scotland and Wales, Cornwall has a rich Christian Celtic heritage but is sometimes overlooked .
