The Churches Conservation Trust now maintain this building.
The church has been very much altered, but there is some of the original cherch's (consecrated 1065) masonry in the walls of the nave.
The church was enlarged and remodelled in the 15th century, and completely refurnished in the 18th century.
The arms of the city and of Bishop Trelawny (a local hero in Cornwall, who was imprisoned for libel by James II) are painted on the gallery.
Monuments dominate the church. An elaborate 18th century monument commemorates Philip Hooper, the benefactor who donated the reredos.
