This is the side chapel in St Sampson's church, Golant. With its barrelled roof and carved Tudor woodwork, it's a work of art and beauty. Near the altar a leaded window has views across the churchyard down to the tidal River Fowey but apart from its beauty, this is the place I choose to pray inside the church. 

The church, perched on the hill above Golant, Cornwall, is sited on the ancient prayer compound founded by St Samson. It is a beautiful location, peaceful, set apart and holy, the church is still a very 'thin' place where it is easy to meet with God. 

The hush and holiness permeate the building and there is a deep rest and peace to be found there. It is a favourite of mine to visit and pray, a place where I find worship easy and often God meets me in extraordinary way. I encourage you to visit.
