Welcome to a snap in time and Cornish Parish Churches: a
site dedicated to photographing Parish Churches within the County
of Cornwall. The links above will assist you in navigating this
site, offering you the chance to view pictures of various parish
churches within Cornwall.
What is "a
snap in time" ? We all take
photographs for one reason or another, but what we forget is that when we take
that image we are in effect capturing a moment in time, which can never be
repeated, a smile from a young child, that special sunset, a family
gathering, all are a piece of history a moment in time we have captured for ever
or for as long as the image medium lasts.
This site started as a means to allow others to access the
images of Parish churches I have taken over the years . As I researched my families
history I would photograph the churches we
visited. It was then that I realised that many people
don't have the ability or means to visit these churches that
I decided to place the images onto the internet.
What is on this site?
Images of all of the Parish Churches in the County of Cornwall, stained glass windows from some of the churches (limited due to the number of images) and pictures of the church fonts .
Along with information transcribed from the Kelly's Directory
of Cornwall. The information on the pages is historical
reference and is not intended to be taken as current or
relevant to today.
local church organisations who would like to use any of these images for
parish magazines or publications to help the church then please ask.
Images will be provided free of charge for these publications. Higher quality images can be provided.
