Timberscombe Church Receives Lottery Grant

St Petroc’s parish church in Timberscombe has been awarded around £50,000 in Heritage Lottery money to repair its roof. Keri Jones from Exmoor Radio met with churchwardens John Gratton and Marion Jeffrey to hear what a difference this grant money will make to the village community.

Keri also discovers why the church is one of the few Grade 1 listed buildings on the moor and he learns about the church’s most treasured features – its rood screen and wall paintings.
