Parish church[edit] The parish church, dedicated to St Wyllow, was built in the 14th century and refashioned in the 15th. The 16th century benchends and panels from family pews have been preserved in the Victorian restoration by E. H. Sedding.[7] The church contains the brasses of Thomas de Mohun (d.1400) of Hall in Lanteglos (grandson of Reginald de Mohun and his wife Elizabeth FitzWilliams)[8] and also a monument to John Mohun (d.1508) of Hall (great-grandson of Thomas de Mohun (d.1400)) and his wife Anne Code (d.1508),[9] who both died within a day of each other of sweating sickness.[10] Historic estates[edit] Main article: Hall, Lanteglos-by-Fowey
