A Cornwall village church ruin is to reopen permanently for the first time in 50 years.
There are plans to improve the site further
The St Day Old Church near Redruth was condemned as unsafe in 1956, but has been open for brief periods.
The 1828 building with its landmark tower underwent more than £170,000 in repairs to make it safe for visitors once again.
The church obtained funding from Cornwall and Kerrier County Councils and the local Parish council.
It is launching another appeal for funding from Objective One to further improve the site.
The church, which is appealing for stewards, intends to open three days a week for visitors from Sunday.
