The Church of All Saints, BH21 7EY
Set on a hilltop, surrounded by magnificent views of the Dorset countryside, the ancient church of Chalbury is one of those special places which are hard to find these days – beautiful, quiet and deeply spiritual. Almost certainly there was an Anglo-Saxon Barrow on this elevated site, and parts of the building are said to be Early English ( 1180-1280) with later changes and additions.
The interior is remarkable, with medieval and Georgian windows allowing plenty of sunlight into the simple nave and chancel. The original 18th Century box pews, three-decker pulpit and musicians gallery have been recently repainted and this small church is always welcoming whenever you may visit.
There is a Parish Communion Service at 10am whenever there is a 5th Sunday of the month, plus additional special services, notably a popular dawn Easter brazier and Service, and a candlelit Advent Service of Light.
