The Old Church at Grade Ruan
This church, whose full dedication is to The Holy Cross and St. Grade is a notable landmark across the entire south end of The Lizard plateau. The church is very remotely situated with no buildings immediately in sight. It dates from approximately the 12th Century and has a tower built out of serpentine, a rock unique to Cornwall, which when polished resembles coloured marble; the lectern and pulpit are of the same material. The church was extensively rebuilt in 1862 but retains a 13th century font.
