St Peter's, Cornworthy

The church of St Peter in Cornworthy stands at the head of the descending street, commanding the village below.  When, before the middle of the 13th century, the Priory rose above the western end of the same street, the view must have been a powerful one for village inhabitants.

Regular public worship is provided free of charge and is open to all.  Details of forthcoming services are given on the noticeboard at the entrance.
