This has unusual and interesting box pews and a three tier pulpit. It also has a memorial to a local lifeboat disaster in the entrance. Unfortunately much of the churchyard is currently fenced off because it has been eroding and falling down the cliff. Caedmon's cross is fortunately on the safer part of the churchyard and so is still able to be viewed. The best thing about this church are the stunning views from it's grounds.

Its a very old quaint church, well worth a visit. Some of the gravestones in the churchyard are very old indeed.

Unusual interior. Take a look and see what I mean, Part of the graveyard is unfortunately collapsing over the cliff after last years heavy rains!

Love this church, go via the 199 steps not as bad as it looks. The gravestones are very interesting to read, some very sad ones.

A Victorian church with box pews with the names of families on.
A large three tier pulpit, with the vicars wife's ear trumpets still in situ.
