Travelled to this bijou church in late January with relatives local to the island. Very atmospheric and desolate at that time of year. Reminiscent of the opening scene to Great Expectations but, devoid of the mist. A small gift shop where an informative pamphlet about...More

Amazing scenic drive to Harty Ferry. Really lovely old church with beautiful stained glass windows. A few historic tombs with brief potted history. Love the jam for sale. The views are smashing and worth the drive along the pot holed country lane.

Beautiful hidden gem, tiny and remote but worth the drive along the very narrow lanes. Not many visitors so easy to park in the road outside.

We always pop into the church to give thanks, it’s so tiny and well kept, there are little jars of jams and chutneys that the parishioners make to raise money’s toward the church which we always buy truly a beautiful place ❤️

A 4 mile drive along a twisty uneven, but tarmaced road through farmlands will eventually bring you to this beautiful old church. Finish off the trip with a drink and maybe something to eat at The Harty Ferry Inn just a couple of minutes away.

When we walked into this lovely old church we were struck by the absolute silence. I don't think I've ever experienced such silence. Outside the churchyard was a beautiful and tranquill resting place. I'm so glad we visited this lovely old church. I think we...More
