Looking Around the Church

On entering the church and looking up the nave towards the chancel the immediate impression is of light and space at the east end.

This is due largely to the elegance of the slender granite columns and the wider arcades of the crossing and chancel in contrast to the narrower nave with its somewhat stocky masonry piers.  The effect is augmented by the light from the clear glass of the windows of the chancel aisles and transepts and complimented by the barrel ceilings.

  1. I believe my uncle George Malcolm Payne carved a cross for your church, presumably post war. He was a carpenter and joiner from Plymouth. As I live too far away to visit myself I wonder if this is so and whether I could see a photograph of it?

    Thank you so much.

  2. Hello and thanks for your email. Give me a few days and when I am next in the church I will look and see what we have – there are a number of wooden crosses. Do you have an other information on out?
