The Church

All Saints Church

The church is dedicated to All Saints and is a fine building of the 14th century. It is built of red sandstone and the arcades are of Beer stone. According to John Betjeman "the full-aisled Devon plan at its best". The tower is handsome and the rood screen is massive and stately with ancient colour and a good series of figure-paintings. The pulpit is medieval and the reredos is by Charles Eamer Kempe.

The village has the usual features including a pub, two renowned restaurants, a sub Post Office and all within a few steps of the village owned (free) car park.

There is a village hall that has been awarded a **A rating and is complete with kitchen and bar and has two room – the traditional village hall and a smaller ‘committee’ room - both rooms are available for hire at reasonable rates.

Kenton is unusual in that it is twinned with two towns – St.Lambert-du-Lattay in the Loire region of France and Linkebeek near Brussels in Belgium.
