St Teath was reputedly another of King Brychan’s daughters and gave her name to the village of St Teath in north Cornwall. The parish church appears to be on a ‘lan’, a circular enclosure indicative of an early Christian prayer oratory site and it is thought she established a hermitage here, although not much is known about her life. She is mentioned as a companion to Breaca.
A tall Celtic cross stands in the graveyard of the parish church near to where her oratory would have been.
Inside the church there is a tangible peace of God and a settling in the spirit. It is very easy to enter into deep reflective and meditative prayer here and it suggests a deep well of prayer has been dug over the centuries. It’s a special place to linger.
