Overview

The dedication to The Holy Paraclete is unique in England.

A Grade II listed building of 1869, the list of Rectors goes back to the 13th century. A Grade II* Saxon Cross standing in the churchyard suggests a much earlier Christian presence.

A fine hammer-beam roof, large fireplace and pencil thin flèche spire were the inspiration its builder, Revd. Octavius James.

We retain the traditional Book of Common Prayer as the basis of our worship.

There are a number of interesting 18th century gravestones, and monuments to the former Lords of the Manor.

Visitors following Isaac’s Tea Trail will find that tea seller Isaac Holden, from Ninebanks, married Ann Teailford at Kirkhaugh in December 1834.
