Selworthy….The Church on the Hillside
Nestling high on the side to Selworthy Beacon is the 15th century attractive Whitewashed Church of All Saints (though I am told the tower is 14th century – so I would imagine an even older religious building was on this site or thereabouts) .
Selworthy is a small Somerset village of thatched cottages and looks as if it little changed from the time of its creation and I guess every house within the village can be seen from the Church.
A high arched wooden roof, whitewashed walls, stone pillars and intricately carved pews await you within All Saints all of which have a mystical glow about them on a sunny day.
Stand at the doorway to the church and look out over the surrounding countryside and enjoy the expanse of Exmoor and Dunkery Beacon beyond the thatched roofs of the village.
The perfect English Village Church overlooking a picture perfect English Village which in turn nestles below some of the best countryside in England
