Saints of Cornwall

"There are more saints in Cornwall than in all of heaven" 
So says the Cornish proverb.

In the so called Dark Ages, Celtic missionaries began arriving en masse on the shores of Cornwall and nearly all these men and women established a small cell, where they lived a quiet and spiritual existence.
These cells were often places where there was an existing well, a spring or some kind of natural monument, later of course larger monuments were erected in their names in the form of a church.
