Recently people have been parking in the narrow lane without any respect for access by residents to their property or access by emergency vehicles or local farmers. The limited parking in front of the Gildhouse should only be used for unloading/loading or drop off/pick up and by those with mobility issues.

history behind the Poundstock Gildhouse
St. Winwaloe is the parish church of Poundstock, situated in a secluded dell by a small stream. Alongside stands its ancient Gildhouse, now a Grade 1 listed building, the best preserved example in Cornwall of a late medieval church house which has been in continuous use since it was built.
