St Mary the Virgin in Walkhampton, Dartmoor

St Mary’s Walkhampton lies half-a-mile north of Walkhampton village on a lofty elevation (700 feet) bordering mysterious and romantic Dartmoor. Occupying an ancient site, it was built long before the village began in the river valley below; hence the unusual distance. Another curious feature is that it faces north-east, the point of sunrise on the longest day, rather than due east. This alignment also points exactly to Gipsy Rock, possibly the meeting place of the Saxon Walkhampton Hundred. Design? Coincidence? A builder‘s error? You decide.
