A church on a hill above a wooded valley

Set on a hillcrest above the lovely wooded Tamar valley, at the end of a long lane with only a farm nearby, this little church is unassuming, but most appealing.

It is mostly Medieval but the low tower was rebuilt in 1791 and there are delightful domestic Georgian sash windows on the north side. It has a barrel roof, continuous over nave and chancel, a simple fourteenth-century granite font and a fine group of slate headstones in the pretty churchyard.

This church costs £2,433 a year to maintain. Make a donation to Luffincott Church here or text 'LUT' to 70191 to donate £10. Thank you.

  • Access information
    Drive down the lane leading to the farm and park in the farmyard - for big groups please enquire before visiting.
  • Facilities & Hire

    St James Church Luffincott is available to hire for events and is a unique and beautiful venue. Due to its historic nature the church has no heating, electricity, running water or toilet facilities so thought needs to be given for events longer than a couple of hours (e.g. portaloo hire). Luffincott Church can seat 60 people. If you would like to hire this church please contact us here.

  • Volunteering Opportunities
    We are currently looking for volunteers at West Ogwell to help with research, interpretation and talks, fundraising and events organising. If you are interested in helping please email the Local Community Officer on [email protected].
