Lustleigh St John the Baptist Church, Devon


  • Located in Lustleigh, Devon, South West England, England
  • Located in the centre of Lustleigh village, on a raised island of land created by the road that encircles the churchyard, Lustleigh St John the Baptist Church dates from the thirteenth century
  • Along with many churches in the UK, however, there's evidence of a much older place of worship on the site. For example, within the church, fixed to its wall, there's Datuidoc's Stone (or the Datuidoci Stone) which, some have said, dates from the sixth century. Visit, see the stone and research its history. Fascinating stuff
  • Lustleigh St John the Baptist Church tower is typical of churches in the local area. Seen from afar, it's very impressive beneath the wooded valley walls
  • Across the road from the church are The Cleave Inn, Primrose Cottage tea rooms and the village shop
  • To the north is the Wray Valley. To the west is the stunning Lustleigh Cleave
  • Local churches include Hennock St Mary's Church with its wondeful paintings and Manaton St Winifred Church with its distinctive tower
  • Read our summary guide to Dartmoor National Park. We'd also recommend visiting Exeter Cathedral and Buckfast Abbey
