Set back from St Thomas Street are these interesting houses behind hedges. These hidden houses were built on the site of the church of St Petroc which fell into decay in the 14th century following the Black Death and was rebuilt in 1428 and re-dedicated to St Thomas the Martyr. This 2nd church was itself demolished in 1845. All that can be seen today of this church is the well-kept churchyard with old tombstones betraying its former use. I don't really believe in ghosts, but I'm not sure I'd want graves right outside my front door..!
