For the first time since 1936 St. Veep’s virgin bells will be lowered and stored in the aisle of the church.

Come and see the bells on Thursday 13th July from 7.00 pm onwards.


Have your photograph taken with the bells and enjoy a cup of tea with us or even perhaps a glass of wine.

The bell ringers will be there to show you round the bells and perhaps tell a tale or two.

Please come along, all are very welcome!

Dendrochronology - St Veep leads the way

June 20th 2017

On Monday 12th June 2017 at 7-30pm the Lerryn History Society, under the leadership of their Chairman Mr Paul Weatherhogg, organised a special talk given by Dr. Joanna Mattingley entitled “Dendrochronology- St Veep leads the way”.

This fascinating talk centred on the science of reading the wood rings in timbers in order to determine their felling date to an accuracy of circa fifteen years, in order to access the building dates of churches and other historical buildings. It transpired that St Veep church was amongst the first in Cornwall to have this done and it would seem that St Veep is one of the oldest churches in the county being dated around 1488.

Some forty to fifty local people enjoyed this evening and tea, coffee and cakes were provided by “The Friends Of St Veep” on completion.

St Veep Bellringers Take to the Water

June 20th 2017

Bank Holiday Monday dawned fine and clear so early in the afternoon 8 ringers and 8 supporters, with Annie Singer driving, took the new Lerryn Minibus to Penmarlam.

We then embarked in three boats for Albert Quay in Fowey when aided by a fine fellow named Ken we rang the bells in the Parish Church. Very nice bells but a tad heavier then St. Veep’s.

After a communal picnic on Albert Quay we set sail again for Golant. We were then met by Sue Miller who ferried the older members up the hill to St Sampsons. Once again an enjoyable ring, the bells are lighter than our own but very different.

Back to the boats and on to Lostwithiel, we were lucky to see a seal on the way, it must have come up fishing on the tide.

We were greeted at St. Barts by tower captain Simon Brewer aided and abetted by Sam. We know these bells well and enjoyed a very convivial ring with our friends from Lostwithiel.

All too soon we had to return to Lerryn in semi-darkness.

Many thanks to David Vipond for his almost faultless organisation and the boat owners for their excellent seamanship.
