This is the last of my miscellaneous postings for a few days, next week I will be doing a short series once again.
I have shown pictures from here before I believe but if you didn't see them this is the inside of St.Mary's Church, Lynton, Devon.
The parish church stands on a ridge overlooking the old part of Lynton on one side and the sea on the other. There are seats in the churchyard with fine views to the Foreland and Countisbury. The church dates from the 13th century although the only part remaining from this time is the tower.The nave was rebuilt in 1741 and again in 1893. The church was enlarged several times to accommodate the growing population of residents and visitors in the 19th century. The last big rebuilding was completed in 1904. The church contains a Norman font and a 15th century holy water stop that came from a former chapel of ease at South Furzehill. There is a monument with a painting of a ship in a storm and an elaborate monument to the Wichehalse family of Ley, now Lee Abbey.
