Christchurch, Hulland Ward

DSCF9140A simple little church, dating from 1838. There are some lovely slate gravestones here with beautiful copperplate writing on them. These are quite a feature in this area and remain readable for a long time.


Inside, another very well cared for church. I love the homely simplicity, whilst outside are some nice clear signs to welcome visitors, as well as some signs to the churchyard’s solitary World War 1 grave. Presumably this gunner died of wounds in the UK which is why he is buried here. A nice touch to direct people to his grave. There is a guide  booklet and a very peaceful and prayerful atmosphere in Christchurch. The children of the church have a small display of their work.


This is a simple little country church with it’s own charm. I really like places like this, nothing grand but well loved and reflects the history and life of the village around it. I rate it as OK as far as this study goes. Somewhere for prayers would be good even if it was just a simple book to enter them. A great church to see though. Website at – a good site but nothing on visitors though.
