Gwannap Pit Methodist Trail

There are many places with strong Methodist connections in Cornwall. Here are three,

that together with Gwennap Pit, make a good Methodist Trail.

with Digory Isbell, a stonemason, and his wife Elizabeth. Has 18th century

furnishings and displays of Weselyana. Trewint is just off the A30
