Church of England Diocese of Truro St. Hilary
The church tower and spire date back to the 13th century, while the nave and chancel were rebuilt in Victorian times after a major fire. The church has a special place in the story of the Anglo- Catholic movement in Cornwall. Fr. Bernard Walke and St. Hilary will always be linked. His story is told in the book ‘Twenty Years at St. Hilary’. In the nineteen twenties history was made when his play, Bethlehem, performed by parishoners, was broadcast by the BBC. The church, through Bernard Walke, has strong links with the Newlyn School of artists, his wife being a member of that circle. Much of the present interior beauty is due to that association.
