St Michael de Rupe

St Michael de Rupe is the parish church of Brentor. Located at 1100 feet on the top of Brent Tor, it is one of the highest working churches in England. Regular services are held from Easter to Michaelmas (the end of September), and occasional services throughout the winter. However, the church is always open for visitors and pilgrims.

The church was founded in 1130, although most parts of the structure you see date from the 13th and 14th centuries. As we approach our 900th anniversary, we are proud to carry on the tradition of praise and worship in this holy place.
