Church of St Mary, St Blazey Gate, St. Blaise - Cornwall (UA)

Rural parish church built in 1844 by GE Street in the early Gothic style. Local stone rubble with Pentewan stone dressings. Plan of nave/chancel and a south aisle with a projecting tower and spire. The tower and spire have structural defects that date back to poor initial design with the spire shedding stonework. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship has been awarded for which work is soon to start.
