The Church of St Swithin at Launcells in Cornwall stands on the site of a Celtic monastery. This was followed by a Norman church, but of this, only the font remains. Most of the current building dates to the 15th century. The church contains a magnificent collection of 16th century carved wooden bench ends. On the west wall is a wall painting, recently conserved, of Abraham and Isaac depicted in Tudor Costume. The floor of the Chancel is covered in a large collection of 16th century Barnstaple glazed tiles.
