All Saints, Holbeton

August 30, 2013

Another impressive church which dominates the village. It is the sort of church which would not disgrace a town let alone a village. It has a spire.

The sign outside just gives service details but there is a welcome letter in the porch.

Some ‘bats’ give a history of the church and there were some post cards for sale. Also a folder of burial records which will be useful for those tracing their family tree. 8 people had entered names into the visitors book over the last 22 days and I noticed that a couple of these had been looking for family.

This church also has two fonts!

A table was set up for children with books, colouring, toys and stickers.

A Roll of Honour folder records the details of the 21 young men from the village who gave their lives in the two world wars. There is a tapestry of the parish which is interesting to look at.

All Saints is richly carved, as many Devon churches are.

I rate this church as OK.
