St Mary, Puncknowle, Dorset - 11th October 2006

This charming church in the quiet village of Puncknowle (pronounced Punnell), is well worth a detour from the coastal road to visit.

The church has an unusually large south aisle, and coupled with the small chancel arch this makes the chancel feel very set apart.  Its nice to see the old oil lamps still in situ.

Here is the organ.  The arch behind once led to a now demolished north chapel.

This is the view from the outside of the site of the former north chapel - the arch is very obvious from this view of the north side of the chancel.
