Tarrant Rushton: St Mary

The Parish of  St Mary's, Tarrant Rushton is part of the Two Rivers Benefice, Dorset. 

St Mary's Tarrant Rushton sits in a peaceful, idyllic position, at the north end of the village postcode DT11 8SD.

The church was consecrated in 1150 AD. Special features of interest include the layout of the church, which forms a Greek Cross, its 'acoustic pots', which makes the service more audible in the main body of the church, and is the only one of its kind in Dorset, and its ' leper window' and 'squint' 

The Two Rivers Benefice is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults and has a Safeguarding Officer. Lynn Webb - [email protected] If you have any concerns about the wellbeing of a child, young person or adult, please refer to the noticeboard in the church porch or download the policy and flowchart on the left.

The Diocese of Salisbury’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our Safeguarding Officers. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
