This like many of the churches in this area is picture perfect, sitting in lovely grounds and a graveyard typically surrounding the church itself. The main lych gate can be accessed via the Main Street through the town centre.

A little very lovely church on the cliff top at Lynton. Take a quick look around, even if just to admire the view of Lynmouth.

We were in Lynton & noticed this lovely & well maintained church. Whilst we didn’t go inside (we had a dog with us) we did walk all around the outside & churchyard. There are some simply stunning views out to sea & down towards Lynmouth....More
