St Petrock’s Church is a Grade I Listed building in the heart of Timberscombe, a small Exmoor village. All are welcome to visit our community asset -the church. This will be the focus of a two day heritage exhibition displaying important key village historic documents including birth, marriage and death registers complete from 1656, Churchwardens Accounts from 1680, Settlement and Removal papers which details the circumstances of the poor and destitute, Faculty papers describing various works to the church over time, and a display of beautiful silver including a communion cup dated 1571 and other materials. Our local History Group will display materials and information provided by villagers which are in our archive, and archaeological reports into the fascinating history of the church will be available concerning wall paintings and recent carbon dating of materials from the Anglo Saxon period. Bell ringing will be demonstrated including the recently revived handbells. In honour of the Platinum Jubilee our local school children will contribute their work for this special occasion and villagers are being urged to loan any Jubilee materials they may have for a Jubilee exhibition focus. The church will be open on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June from 10am to 5pm for all visitors. Refreshments are available and the church has a partially accessible toilet. There is no charge for admission but donations are welcome. This heritage exhibition is organised by the St Petrock’s Timberscombe PCC and any donations will support a project to replace our deteriorated churchyard pathways. Do visit us!
