Remember a few weeks back I wrote Ten Free Days Out in South Devon? Well, I'm adding Cockington Court in Torquay to the post. Not that I've been there mind - it was a recommendation from a friend. But even my orignal list contained details of a place that I'd not yet visited myself. So, on Saturday, I thought I'd have a nose around and put that right.
Holy Trinity Church. I've spotted its white spire peeping out above the trees whilst commuting down the A38. Though destroyed by arson in 1992, it's a gorgeous place that, for me, exuded tranquility. Services are currently held on Monday's at 10:30 in this glorious spot and participants are invited to bring a picnic to share afterwards. The bell tower has been restored to and you can view all the campagnology gubbins behind a glass screen. All well and good. But, follow the incredibly comprehensive link above that gives information about the church and you'll find that others see this landmark in a completely different light.
