Wendron Parish Church

Wendron (Cornish: Gwendron)[1] is a village and civil parish in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is three miles (5 kilometres) north of Helston.

The Revd G. H. Doble served for almost twenty years as the Vicar of Wendron (1925–1945). Langdon (1896) recorded the existence of eight stone crosses in the parish, including two at Merther Uny. The church of St Wendrona contains the brass of Warin Penhalluryk, rector of St Just, vicar of Wendron and Stithians, d. 1535.[2]

The Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site is partly in Wendron parish. The Long Stone on Prospidnick Hill is just to the east.
