About Us

St. Paul's Broadoak is one of eight churches spread over the four parishes which make up the

Benefice of Eggardon and Colmers in south-west Dorset.  

Askerswell / Loders / Powerstock / Symondsbury Church takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.

The Church consists of a nave with a bellcote and short chancel.

The walls are of coursed lias stone. The roof is slate with cable copings.

The bellcote to the West gable has set-offs and a cross over.

The main door is in the West gable end and has a two centred arch which is chamfered, as are the jambs.

This is a double door with ornamental strap hinges and there is a light stone mullioned window with plate tracery above it, and a trefoil stone window above that.

The side walls have four pointed arch windows with straight chamfers.


The church is officially designated as a Chapel of Ease and was erected in the 1860’s to meet the needs of the Broadoak working community.
