a life in architecture ferdinand mount

On the Pembrokeshire coast, nestling in the limestone cliffs just above the high water mark, there is a little fourteenth century chapel dedicated to St Govan, thought to be a Cornish saint. It is a plain single chamber the same colour as the cliffs, with a dried-up holy well nearby. If you count the steps going down and coming up again, you never come to the same figure.Walking along the cliff path above, I don't often go down, but I always like to think of that wavelashed holy place.
