St Lalluwy

The church at Menheniot contains two fine pieces of woodcarving by Harry Hems of Exeter: the pulpit with panels depicting stirring maritime scenes, and the lectern incorporating a large figure of a former Rector.

Font Cover – Photograph (PWDRO 244/4 & 244/5); 1914

This large and elaborate font cover requires the use of ropes and pulleys to operate. It is a beautiful piece, octagonal in shape, with cherub faces and ‘dolphins’ around the base and is surmounted by a typical Pinwill dove. An inscription includes the date of 1914.

Parclose Screen – Photograph (PWDRO 116/63) R.F. Wheatly architect; after 1931

The screen sits on the south side of the chancel, on the back of the choir stalls, and is ornamented by a running design of vines and birds along the cornice. It is a memorial to Henry William Thomas who died in 1931.
