Mad Cornish pair blog on Church

The Church of St. Andrew in Stratton is situated just over a mile inland from the Town of Bude.

Over the Centuries the Norman Church has enlarged considerably incorporating much history as it has grown over time.

The doomsday survey implies that there could of been a Church in Stratton before the Norman Conquest & extensive restoration in 1888 uncovered traces of what undoubtedly could of been it’s norman predecessor directly beneath.

The oldest feature to be seen is the granite font which is quite simplistic but dates back to the 12th Century & this is the time when the true history of St. Andrew starts to unfold.
