Photographic postcard of St Anthony-in-Roseland Church, taken around 1948. The Church is a 12th century cruciform church established by the Augustinian Priory of Plympton. The church was extensively restored in the Victorian period but retained so much of its original character that Sir Nickolaus Pevnser called it the best example in Cornwall of a parish church from the 12th and 13th centuries. It has been designated as a Grade II* listed building and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
