Visited 19.4.12

Directions:
Built into the church wall in the middle of Cubert village – south of Newquay.

There is a large car park outside the church and the church itself is worth a look around.

The lettering on the stone was barely visible and if I wasn’t specifically looking for it I would never have known it was there.

But I did know about it; I was specifically looking for it; so I found it!

The inscription on the stone reads..

CONETOCI FILI TEGERNOMALI
(Conetocus, son of Tergernomalus)

Tigernos = King

The stone dates from the Dark Ages but it is possibly an older standing stone that has been re-used.

The stone is horizontally built into the base of Cubert Church.
