St Werburgh Church

St Werburgh Church

The lovely Anglican church of St Werburgh is set in an attractive location overlooking the sea, Wembury beach and the Mewstone. One of fourteen churches dedicated to that saint (not all still in use), the present structure dates from around the fourteenth century, although there are grounds to believe that it had predecessors as far back as the ninth century.

Registers of Births and Deaths run unbroken from 1611, and Marriages from 1612.
