St Elidius is a Celtic saint who had a prayer oratory and small community on a remote island in the Isles of Scilly. The remains of the prayer oratory and church, plus foundations of houses still remain and it is possible to visit even though the island is now uninhabited. The place is 'thin' and it is a possible to encounter God readily. The island was a place of pilgrimage for many centuries, and whilst it may feel forgotten today, the fragrance of God still permeates the island.
