  • St Pancras Church, Widecombe-in-the-Moor

Other Information

  • The pillars in the nave are architecturally unusual. Whereas most churches used pillars that were assembled from pieces of pre-carved stonework making the job simpler to do, St Pancras Church has pillars which are single solid stone blocks throughout.
  • Immediately adjacent to the church is its brewery built from the same granite stone. It was completed around the same time as the church itself. These days however it serves as a village hall.
  • In a rare act of god, St Pancras Church was actually hit by ball lightning during Sunday worship in 1638 with four being killed and 60 injured.
