Parish Church of St Anne, Whitstone Head, Whitstone - Cornwall (UA)

Large parish church with a C13 core with C15 upper tower and three-aisle plan. The porch and the chancel originate from the 1882 restoration. Mostly slatestone rubble with granite dressings. Cornish slate roofs. In fair condition overall but very bad damp in the tower due to a leaking downpipe on the north side. Unguttered pitches on the north and south eaves. Slates are starting to slip from the roof pitches.
