The Building

A building has been on this site since about 800AD. The first one was probably wooden. There have been lots of changes over the years with bits added on or demolished, especially when the tower fell down! The present roof was put on in the 1930s and the Church Rooms were added in the 1970s and added to again in the 1990s.

The church has been added to and modified many times over the years, both inside and out.

In 2005 we embarked on some much needed work, starting, as we were advised, with the outside. We have received grants which have enabled us to restore the stonework, windows and so on.

Inside, we have recently put in five modern fan driven radiators which means the church is now considerably warmer in the winter!

The church is often open in the afternoons from Easter to September - look for the 'Church Open Today' sign.






Someone from the church will be there to welcome you and show you around or leave you to wander on your own. There are information batons in each part of the church. People from the village and walkers are among the many different visitors.

When the church is open you are especially welcome to come and pray or just have some space to stop the think. 

The next stage of building improvement is the inside.

Some plans have been drawn up by the Architect, but it will be some time before we can do anything as we will need to raise a lot of money first.

The most important aspect of this is to sort out the heating, the electrics and the rot in the floor.

While we are planning these things it seems sensible to make the building as versatile as possible.
