Beautiful Place to Visit

This has such a calm about it that it can ease me just by walking round it. The tree is magnificent and it just has a beauty about it, such a calm.

We were staying in Uplyme so we decided to visit the church as we do where ever we are. The church is the centre of the community therefore it has a lot of cumminity minded articles in the church, we nearly fell over a table tennis table as we walked in. The architecture is fantastic especially the ceiling and screen... More

Lovely old Yew tree in the graveyard providing shelter from the rain. Interesting old church that is active in the local community. Only limited parking nearby.

Really lovely Church which I only visited for the first time at the weekend for a funeral. The service for my Grandad (Eric Rogers) was beautiful - thank you very much!

The impressive tree is apparently a thousand years old and one of the oldest on the south coast. The interior has been considerably updated and has lost virtually all the atmosphere typical of most churches of this age. The organ is a nice (small) instrument but overall this place lacks "soul" - somewhat ironic for a church. Worth calling by... More

The building itself is old, tranquil and traditional. However, the short tenure of a "trendy vicar" caused the old wooden pews to be removed and replaced by red canvas chairs. A great pity.

There is a lovely walk from Lyme Regis to Uplyme. When you reach Uplyme you can turn right to the church or left to the pub. We did both. A nice little church which has suffered some modernisation. Well worth a look.

Uplyme was a small farming community when I used to walk from Rocombe to Mrs Ethelston's Church Primary School with it's three rooms. We did have school milk and a full cooked lunch though. Dreary wartime days, then., I watched the Coronation shown by Graham Newberry on a monochrome (12 inch?) screen strapped to a central pillar - the church... More

The Church is pretty old, but inside it has been nicely modernised with modern, more comfortable seating. We liked this. Some may prefer the old pews, but this has brought it up to date, and we found it very welcoming & warm.
