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.


  • Access information

    From car park at top of mobile home park down very steep tarmac drive (400m) to churchyard gate. One step down at gate and three more at north door.

    From the churchyard to the entrance there are 4 steps and very uneven floors.

  • Facilities & Hire
