All Saints’ is a 15th century church located in the beautiful village of Selworthy which is nestled within Exmoor National Park. The Grade 1 English Heritage building is situated on the side of the hill, with breath taking views across the Porlock Vale countryside, facing towards the highest point on Exmoor, Dunkery Beacon. Despite the church being constructed in the 15th century, the plain tower was completed in the 14thcentury which is in the Early Perpendicular style.
Selworthy Church is the only one in the district that is still periodically coated with a mixture of lime and tallow which helps to protect it from the elements. Photographs taken a hundred years ago show most of the local churches similarly covered.
