LANIVET


Lanivet is a village quite near to Wadebridge and Bodmin and also to Bodmin Moor. The Cornish name is similar to the English name being Lanneves.  There is a hogback grave in the Churchyard from Viking  days. The churchyard also contains two stone crosses.  Near to the church is what is left of a Benedictine Monastery called St Benet's .  In the sixth century AD the hermit St  Congar of Congresbury may have been in the parish.  
The famous novelist  
Thomas Hardy visited Lanivet in 1872 and wrote a poem which  was called Near Lanivet.
So the village has a bit of history associated with it.
