“Spartan but not boring...”
Review of East Church

East Church
Reviewed 2 October 2016 via mobile

The simplicity of the church and it's design, decor etc were powerful in portraying its role in the community. Anything added was carefully considered and subtly handled. Information supplied outlined the important aspects of the church and its constituent elements.

Charming.

If you enjoy church visiting, don't miss this one. A well cared for redundant church, it has a lovely atmosphere and there are many interesting details to look at. The graveyard is very picturesque. For kids? Our son is so used to being dragged round old buildings that he really liked this one. But for any kids, the church and graveyard are good for an explore and maybe some pretend-play, and they're free.

Lovely flower arrangements. Great art fair. Friendly volunteers. Such an interesting building and churchyard.... some of the graves will break your heart though....

This is a really fascinating old church. The atmosphere inside is very atmospheric and the churchyard in particular is interesting. The graves are covered in moss and there was lots of holly as well in the churchyard. There is a book available to read detailing all the changes to the church over the centuries.

found this totally by accident, got split up from the hubby , walked around the corner saw this church yard and thought bet he's in here, firstly walked all round the churchyard then peered into the windows not realising at this point the church was open, then I just tried a door to see, walked inside was very dark, peaceful and musty, this church is now redundant but apparently available for funerals and weddings, it is managed by the Scottish redundant churches, inside there is 3 separate balconies with little bits of information about the place, also a very big central font, it's so good that this ancient church is available for people to go in and see and feel , please also if you are able , leave a donation so these places will stay around for our children to see, well worth a visit
