About Us

St. Mary the Virgin is an ancient and beautiful church set at the heart of the unspoilt Dartmoor village of Holne, County Devon. The church is part of the Anglican Communion and services are held every week. It is kept open during the day throughout the year and is a place of peace, tranquillity, beauty and prayer.
The church dates from the thirteenth century with the records showing an incumbent priest in Holne in 1240. Its dedication to St Mary the Virgin may indicate earlier links to the abbey at Buckfast, whose sheep were grazed in the district of Holne.


The Annual Church Parochial Meeting will take place in the church at 5pm on Sunday 13th September 2020 as part of the church service.  Please click on the links below for the documents for the meeting.
