A rugged remnant on a cliff

The rugged remains of this Medieval church sit dramatically on a cliff above Stoke Bay.

It has a strangely monastic feel to it. The aisle and porch have carved wagon roofs, but the rest of this atmospheric church is a picturesque ruin as it was abandoned by parishoners around 1870 in favour of the new church built at Noss.

    Attended the service on 1st July. Very much enjoyed this and feel those who support it need our support to!

    When my children were young we had a caravan at Stoke Beach and the highlight of every summer weekend whilst on site was to visit the church. My then 6 year old daughter said - 'I'm going to get married here'!
    Now, 23 years on and planning a wedding for 2015, she has still not let go of the desire to have her marriage ceremony at the Church of St Peter the Poor Fisherman, Revelstoke. It will be my job to see if I can make my little girls dream come true.

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 are three steps down into the church.

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.
