Its a little late in the day to make mention of our visit to this stately church. It has so many interesting features both religious and architecturally and therefore should not be missed, and for those visiting from "Down Under" the linkage with Australia and new Zealand is re-inforced by it location on Anzac Street.

St Saviour's Church in the centre of the Old Town of Dartmouth is a real gem, almost hidden, but still a gem well worth a visit. Its interior is exquisite - the choir screen being a particular favourite of mine.

This church is simply magnificent and definitely worth a visit. It has an amazing screen with figures of saints painted on panels and dating back to 1480. The church is small but rich in architecture and interior. It is also quite spiritual. They currently have a small photos exhibition Dartmouth and Great War.

This ancient church sits four square on a raised hill smack in the centre of Dartmouth. Its interior is truly stunning having recently been refurbished, its walls revealing medieval figures. It has a thriving community which welcomes visitors, and a very active bell-ringing group that pealed the bells across the Town. Its a must-do visit.

Pop into this beautiful church in the middle of Dartmouth. Peace and quiet awaits you - and there are wonderful windows, architectural features and all the usual adornments of a lovely church

This is really worth a visit. Right in the centre of town. It is hundreds of years old, so is historically interesting apart from the stunning interior.

Once a year, usually a Saturday in early June, the church is open for the public to see the bells being rung by local campanologists under the guidance of a veteran of over 38 years. It was nice to see young bell ringers too. The eight of bells date back to a rebuild in about 1938, but all the supporting... More

We are a welcoming church which meets in Guildford, made up of people from all walks of life and from different backgrounds and cultures. We enjoy being a diverse community all sharing in a common goal of knowing Jesus Christ and making him known in our community.

A lovely and impressive building, with many interesting features, including an ancient and elaborate door, superb chancel screen, magnificent stone pulpit, a fine 18th century organ case somewhat hidden from view in the chancel, and a magnificent brass also in the chancel. Unfortunately this brass is covered by carpet all of the time to protect it. It's a pity that... More
