Dating from around the 13th century and remodelled and repaired in the late 19th century, St Garmon's is a simple place of peace and quiet at the end of a single track rural lane. There are at least 6 services here throughout the year.

The church stands in an elevated churchyard looking out over the valley, surrounded by snowdrops and primula in the spring.

A lovely place to come and enjoy a few moments of peaceful meditation, prayer and contemplation, to bookend or break a walk, or to simply enjoy the beautiful setting with a packed lunch and a flask of tea! There is a small, sloping, gravel car park next to the church for visitors to use.
