style and in 1878 had six bells. Renovations to the porch, nave and aisles were completed in that year along with the extension of the burial ground by enclosing an adjacent field.[4] Within the church are monuments of the Courtenays of Tremere.[5][6] In the churchyard are two ancient stone crosses and a rare example of a hogback grave dating from Viking times. A. G. Langdon (1896) also records the existence of four more stone crosses in the parish.[7][8] About a quarter of a mile from the church are the remains of St Benet's, a monastery of the Benedictine order, said to have been subordinate to Monte Cassino, in Italy, or according to others, Clairvaux in Burgundy.[citation needed] It was founded as a lazar house in 1411, and during the 15th century a chapel with a tower and an adjacent longhouse were built. The building work was not complete by 1430; it is mentioned in a document of 1535. The tower and longhouse are mentioned by Charles Henderson as being still in existence; he refutes the idea of it as an abbey.[9] After the Reformation

it became the home of the Courtenay family; the present house looks 19th-century with 15th-century windows built into the facade.[10] St Benet was restored by, its then owner, Charles Eldon Sargeant in 1878, and is described by The Cornishman newspaper as ″... a charming and picturesque place.[4] St Ingunger, in the parish, is said to have been the residence of the hermit, Saint Congar of Congresbury, in the early 6th century. Churches dedicated to him may also be found in Brittany

and Cornwall.[11] Near to the village is located Lesquite Quoit, a ceremonial funerary monument built around 3500-2600 BC, one of only 20 portal dolmens surviving in the United Kingdom.[12][13] Industry[edit] In the adjacent hills, tin and iron extraction ceased in (or just before) 1878, and all that was left of the industry was one or two tin-stamps.[4] Thomas Hardy
