Photographer's Note

Altarnun, which nestles in the sheltered valley of Penpont Water, a tributary of the River Inny, is named in the Domesday Book as Penpont and can truly be described as one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Across the two bridges stands the Church of St.Nonna. The Normans built a church here in the 12th century, but the church as it now stands was built in the 15th century and was partly constructed of unquarried stone from the moors. Surprisingly the tower is 109 feet high, its height being less noticeable due to the backdrop of hill and trees.
