Tower of former church of St Kea, Kea - Cornwall (UA)

Tower of former church of St Kea, now a ruin. The tower stands in a wooded valley beside the current church of St Kea and is a picturesque and imposing reminder of the first church. The tower has had some stabilisation work carried out to its pinnacles, and some ivy has been removed, however this well-meaning ivy removal may cause longer term damage due to joint loosening. The tower has no active use and may require additional stabilisation and/or repairs which, given the very small and occasional use of the nearby church, will be difficult to fund from existing resources.
