Parish Churches - All Hallows & St Anne's

All Hallows -   The church was originally a chapelry dependent on the parish church of Hartland and became separate  during the Reformation. The porch and font are Norman and the tower is the only example from the 13th century in north Devon, with a south-facing external stairway.

 

There is a ring of six bells which were added in 1826. The north aisle and nave have a collection of interesting bench ends thought to have been carved in the 15th century.

St Anne's - The church was built in 1861 by the Elwes family,the former landowners, for the estate workers.  The entries in our visitors' book bear good testament to our policy of leaving it open at all times.

 

The church, which nestles in the valley leading down from the A39 to the sea, is constructed from local stone and the remains of the quarry is now our car park.
