If you enjoy art, peace, beauty, architecture, history… or sharing faith, then Devon’s churches are time well spent, one of the most remarkable groups in Britain…

Fantastical carvings, breathtaking images, gorgeous stained glass, powerful stone architecture, old colours, new colours, no colours, light and shadow, ancient and modern, faith and love…

For in this field and woodland draped landscape of deep valleys and ragged hills, battered by seas on two coasts, the fierce-faithed folk of medieval Devon created wonders of stone, oak and glass; saints and symbols, coloured and carved, foliage laced, divinely whispered, glowing down through the centuries…

… and then their Victorian descendants sprinkled their own magic across the county. Please come in and enjoy.
