Culbone Church, near Porlock Weir, Somerset

Culbone Church, near Porlock Weir, Somerset

There are so many parts of Exmoor National Park that you really ought to see and Culbone Church is one of them. This dear little church is said to be the smallest parish church in England, with room for a congregation of just 33. The setting is wonderful, especially if you like that whole step back in time thing; the church stands in a woodland glade high on the cliffs above Porlock and on the hillside are the romantic remains of Lord Byron’s daughter’s gothic mansion and tunnels carved in the hillside by 19th century explorers. 

Part of the charm of a visit to Culbone Church is the access - you have to walk up through the wooded cliffs on part of the coast path; the views over the Bristol Channel on the way up are quite something and give you good reason to have a pause.
