St Mabyn church roof report

A fascinating report by Ian Tyers for English Heritage on the dendrochronological analysis of the oak timbers of St Mabyn church can be downloaded here.
The calculation of common felling periods for the three roofs suggests construction dates of AD 1513–35 for the north aisle, AD 1485–1514 for the nave, and AD 1487–1523 for the porch.
