Font Cover at Landrake

Font Cover – no documentary evidence; after 1954

During a visit to St Erney church to see a number of items made by V. Pinwill, including the font cover, the churchwarden suggested that the one at Landrake, the mother church, was identical. A visit there confirmed that this was indeed so, although surprisingly the St Erney font cover predates it. It is a memorial to Edwin Menhinick who died in October 1954, which means that this is one of the later-known pieces made in the lifetime of V. Pinwill.
