ST MARY THE VIRGIN CHURCH LYNTON DEVON
The stunning location of St Mary The Virgin's church and churchyard at Lynton, in Exmoor National park, North Devon, SW England, UK. Lynton is perched on dramatic cliffs and hills above the rugged coast and the area with neighbouring Lynmouth has been called "Little Switzerland". Nearby is the Valley of the Rocks with its amazing geological formations and feral goats. The church dates from medieval times and has a C13th tower with medieval bells whilst other parts were reconstructed in late Victorian times. Unusual to see picnic benches in a churchyard but a lovely resting place in more ways than one. Taken on an overcast day in July.
