This is one of many things why I in awe of England so much and continued wonder - how many random awesomeness everywhere, "Look around at the country; look and be amazed! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder!"

St Enodoc's Church, Trebetherick - from wikipedia: "The church is situated in sand dunes east of Daymer Bay and Brea Hill on the River Camel estuary. Wind-driven sand has formed banks that are almost level with the roof on two sides. From the 16th century to the middle of the 19th century, the church was virtually buried by the dunes and was known locally as "Sinking Neddy"[citation needed] or "Sinkininny Church".[1] To maintain the tithes required by the church, it had to host services at least once a year, so the vicar and parishioners descended into the sanctuary through a hole in the roof. By 1864 it was unearthed and the dunes were stabilized.[2] The church is surrounded by the Church golf course of the St Enodoc Golf Club."
