St Peter's Church
St Peter's Church, Stoke Fleming, is Grade 2* listed and dates from the 13th century. The tower stands 83 feet high at 400 feet above sea level, and was formerly a sea mark to help mariners navigate into the port of Dartmouth.
The church is situated adjacent to the South West Coast Path and therefore attracts many passing visitors interested in the history of the building, and to admire the magnificent views over Start Bay. The church is usually open for prayer and meditation and for visiting during daylight hours.
The parish of Stoke Fleming is part of the Coast and Country Benefice in Woodleigh Deanery in the Diocese of Exeter. The other Coast and Country Churches are St Michael's Strete, St Michael's Blackawton and St Andrew's East Allington.

As you may have heard, our church bellringers are now back in action, but have you ever thought about learning to ring our church bells yourself?
Church bellringing has a long history in the UK; it is an art, an interesting hobby, and a team activity all at the same time. It requires good concentration and some mild physical effort, but if you are in reasonably good health, and can climb the thirty or so steps to the ringing chamber, that should not be a problem. If you are interested in finding out more about our church bells, and would like to see them being rung or have a go yourself, please come and see us. Contact details and more information about ringing can be found HERE
