An open day is being held at Salcombe Regis Parish Church on Saturday, September 10. 

The historic church is in a beautiful setting, at the top of a steep valley with views down towards the sea. 

The building is Norman in origin, having been begun some time around 1125, and Norman features still survive. Significant additions were made in the 13th century, including the north arcade, south aisle, and the chancel arch. 

A much more modern feature is a stunning altar tryptich, of national significance, designed by the famous glass engraver Sir Laurence Whistler and completed by his son Simon.   

The church is opening its doors as part of Devon Historic Churches Day, organised by the Devon Historic Churches Trust – a charity dedicated to raising funds and awarding grants for the repair and maintenance of places of worship in the Diocese of Exeter and throughout Devon. 

It will be open from 10.30am to 5pm with guided tours available and refreshments served in the church car park.
