Inside All Saints Church, Newland (2007)

Recent Photograph of Inside All Saints Church (2007) (Newland)

Wide nave and equally wide aisles make the interior exceedingly spacious. This spacial feel is increased by the Victorian clerestory and steep-pitched main roof. In comparison the chancel is much lower, and the dominant east window is also 19th century and recalls the west window of Tintern Abbey in the valley below.

The church posesses a number of monuments from the 14th century onwards. Most famous is the Dean Miner brass. There is also an incised slab with the figure of an Forester - Archer, complete with bow, and probably 17th century.

In an odd outer south chapel is a standing monument to Sir Edward Probyn d.1742, and elsewhere Jenkyn Wyrall d.1457, brought in from the churchyard in 1950.
