The church on Brent Tor can be seen in the distance in many of my photographs of Dartmoor. This church, perched on a rocky outcrop, is one of my favourite places on Dartmoor. We recently visited it when the weather was changing dramatically between sunshine and showers.It is still in regular use for services and is lit by gas light. While we were there this time, the bells were in the process of being rehung. Despite all the works going on, it has a very peaceful atmosphere and its location demands that you stand and stare and take a little time out with God. It is the subject of much history and many stories which you can read about here.
It is certainly a place to visit if you venture to Dartmoor and the views are worth the climb. Make sure you choose a clear day.
I am sure there is a story to be written about this character who was accompanying the men who were hanging the bells and she was watching for any approaching visitors to the churchyard.
