Holcombe Old Church - The "Plague Church"

Vision of Britain - acknolwdegement

Situated just a short walk across the fields from the Holcombe Inn is the Old Church of St Andrews - known locally as the Plague Church

It was once surrounded by the village but in 1348 the Black Death struck and the remaining Villagers abandoned their homes and resettled higher up the hill

The nursery rhyme, Ring a Ring o' Roses originates from Holcombe and some years ago was previously the name of the Holcombe Inn

We are keyholders of the Church so please drop by if you wish to visit 

The Church was recently used for for filming the latest series of Poldark
