Whitchurch, St Dubricius Church
Whitchurch, St Dubricius Church
The church of St dubricius at Whitchurch dates to the 13th century, and is built n the Decorated Gothic style. Parts of an older church appear to have been incorporated into the current building; the font bowl is of Norman date, though it has been cut to fit a late 14th century stem.
The interior of the church is decorated with a wealth of local needlework and tapestries. Outside the door of the church is a tulip tree thought to be over 300 years old. To the west of the churchyard is the Gwillam tomb enclosure, built by Thomas Gwillam in 1744. The Gwilliam family owned Old Court at Whitchurch from 1600 until 1898, and the enclosure contains numerous family graves.
