St Senara’s Church
Zennor, St Ives, TR26 3BY
Welcome to the parish church of St Senara, Zennor in the Anglican Diocese of Truro, Cornwall. The church is in the centre of Zennor village, 5 miles from St Ives on the B3306 towards Land’s End, one of the country’s most scenic drives. The church is open to visitors every day of the year from 9am to approximately 6pm, (but a little earlier in winter). The circular graveyard is an Iron Age site overlying the Stone and Bronze Age boundaries of this ancient land. Christianity came to Zennor when the Age of Saints followed the fall of the Roman Empire. Originally dedicated to St. Senara, Zennor is one of the few places to begin with a Z. The Cornish language hardened in the 16th century and the S changed to Z. The first window in the chancel shows her holding the church.
