The River Fowey is a tidal river with a wide estuary. It is flanked by wooded hillsides which creeps down to the water's edge. Many Celtic saints chose to live along the river as hermits or in small prayerful communities. They often lived within a day's walk of each other so that they could fellowship, have communion and hear each other's confessions. The river feels remote and has many hidden creeks, even today. It is beautiful and it is easy to see why many settled here to spend time praying with God and sharing about Jesus. There are medieval churches built on Celtic Christian sites flanking both sides of the river and whilst these are now in tiny rural communities and hamlets, many still permeate the presence of God and are 'thin places'. Some even have Celtic crosses in their church yards. They are well worth visiting to pray and linger.
