St Wenna church has a chancel (which was rebuilt in 1823), nave, and north and south aisles. The arcades each include three depressed four-centred arches supported on monolith pillars; the material is St Stephens porcelain stone. The chief entrance is a south porch; a north door and a west door to the north aisle are blocked up. The tower only consists of two stages; a third was destroyed by lightning in 1663. It is large and a high status construction. It is buttressed on the square. The belfry contained five bells.<br>A chapel at Carenzawatha was dedicated to St Mary Magdalane; it was destroyed in the Civil War and only some slight remains are now evident.<br>
