Interesting church with the addedd bonus of Betjeman's burial place if you're someone interested in poetry. It's a good walk so have the right footwear and watch out for the tides

Great walk from Polzeath to Rock, seeing the once half buried church, amazing places all around with plenty to see, just not in the rain....as we did, well worth the walk though, rain or shine....
