West Ogwell, Devonshire, England



We visited this church in June 2012 when we were staying a few miles away.  The church (which has no dedication) is now cared for by the  Churches Conservation Trust,  who look after many 'redundant' churches in England, saving them from decay and an unknown future.

The interior of the church managed to avoid the Victorian restoration that so many others went through, so it feels like we can see back further in time to how churches used to be.  Whilst every church is unique, this one does feel rather special and worth a visit if you are able, to see the interior which is both plain and beautiful at the same time.  The building is Grade I listed - more information about the listing can be found at the:  Historic England  website.

It was a rather unsatisfactory journey to find the church - the road narrow, winding with high hedges and sharp bends, helping one lose any sense of direction.  A few times we even wondered if we were lost.  It didn't help that we were also attacked by a huge dog, snarling teeth bared, jumping at the windows.  However, we did manage to find the church eventually and were very pleased the dog did not follow us!
