Culbone Church, West Somerset

Terry's picture

Culbone Church is a Grade I listed building, which is reputed to be the smallest church in England (to hold regular services) and dates from the 12th Century. A tripod is recommended for this location as it lies deep in a valley, which at times other than the middle part of the day during summer months, is likely to be in shadow; so light levels will be low. Photographing the interior (normally unlocked during daylight hours) will also require a tripod. It is only accessible on foot and involves approximately a two mile walk from Porlock Weir. The footpath starts immediately behind the Anchor Hotel and initially passes through open fields, but is mostly through woodland, passing some interesting stone constructions on the way and there are views of Porlock Bay en route. The path runs along the Porlock to Worthy road for a very short stretch and although there are some steep uphill sections, some with steps, it is mostly easy walking, although unsuitable for wheelchairs and may be muddy after wet weather.

Another one to add to the list.

Not far from our favourite camping site in the Doone Valley.

Excellent guide btw.
