A moorland church is inviting the public to a harvest time cream tea.

Each year the 15th century St Petroc’s church in Harford near Ivybridge is beautifully decorated for harvest by local people.

However, since Harford is such a tiny hamlet, not many people see the church in all its finery. So this year, the congregation has decided to open its doors on Saturday, October 14, from 2pm to 5pm and invite people to visit the ancient building.

Visitors will be able to view the harvest decorations and enjoy a cream tea at the same time. Volunteers from Harford have been busy painting the interior of the church over recent weeks, so it is looking in great shape. All proceeds from the teas will go towards the upkeep of the church.
