Thurlbear, St Thomas Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Annother reminder of that early building is the Norman font, as is a section of a 12th century window incorporated into a lancet in the chancel. A squint pierces the wall of the south aisle to permit a view of the main altar.
When the new west tower was added in the 15th century the aisles were narrowed, suggesting that Thurlbear had become much less prosperous as the Middle Ages went on.
In the churchyard stands a cross dating to the 15th century while the old manor house and tithe barn stand nearby. St Thomas fell out of use in the late 1980s and has since been in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
