    We visited All Saints on the 31st of May 2011 but were disappointed that even after obtaining the key to the church from the adjacent farm we couldn´t unlock the door.(Possibly locked from inside).
    We now live in Mallorca so I wanted to visit the church that my g,,g,grandfather had been baptised in and his parents were married during the early part of the 19th century.
    Otterhampton is still a peaceful and spiritual place and it was so nice to walk in the grounds and admire the simplistic beauty of this old chuch. A nice sunny day so I took some lovely photos.
    The chap from the farm told me that it had been a longtime since anybody had visited which was such a shame as I´d noticied that some parts of the churchyard were overgrown and contained graves.
    (possibly some of my ancestors?)

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

There is good access up a concrete slope.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
