About Us

This classic Victorian Church has possibly the best setting of any church in England, with sweeping views of the Dart Valley and in the far distance the red tower of Totnes Church. It is a perfect place to sit and rest while walking around Dartmoor, and many people have found a quiet peace sitting in its calm interior.

The church is actively supported by a very committed team of village people who have grown fit in climbing up and down the steep lane to the church! If you can find time to visit, make sure you look at the Stained Glass Window on the right which was placed during the First World War in memory of Lt Bolitho killed at Ypres. https://www.cornishstainedglass.org.uk/mkcbol/
