St. Winifred’s, Branscombe

St. Winifred’s is a wonderful church sat deep in the Devon countryside approached by some steep and narrow lanes. It is not a place to rush but all the better for that.

This church is open each day. I visited on a friday and some very friendly ladies were doing flowers for a wedding on the saturday. There is a friendly welcome notice on the door (this didn’t photograph that well so I haven’t put it up here). There is a guide book in the church as well as a laminated sheet to walk around with. I found some 25 entries in the visitor’s book for May. There was a prayer board (which had been moved away from it’s usual prominent position because of the wedding – so I was told) and a display of church life.

There is a lovely modern cross on the chancel arch…

And a rare, triple decker pulpit.

All in all a very enjoyable visit to a wonderful church in a fantastic setting. The church website is informative. See https://holyford.org/churches/branscombe/st-winifreds-church/ but doesn’t give visitor information which is a shame.
