Welcome to our church
St Mary’s church sits on a hill half a mile above the village of Walkhampton. Our church parish covers the village of Walkhampton, part of Dousland, Welltown and stretches across the moors to include Princetown and several outlying farms. We have a good team of volunteers who keep things running smoothly and a bellringing team for our 6 bells. We are proud of the strong links with our Church of England Primary School, Lady Modiford’s, which was founded in 1719. The school regularly visit the church for services.
Our church has strong links with the community, with regular support at the weekly Saturday village market. Annual events include Remembrance Service with the Scout movement, carol singing in the village pub and a variety of social events. We are unique in being the only ‘living church’ that offers Champing in Devon. https://www.champing.co.uk/church/walkhampton-plymouth-st-mary-the-virgin/
