Symington Church

Symington Church was founded in the 12th Century by the Norman Knight Simon Loccard, possibly giving rise to the name of the village as a corruption of Simon's Town.

It belonged in it's time to the Trinitarian Monastery of Failford.

It's main architectural features are the three lancet windows in the east wall of the church, the piscina set in the South Window of the chancel area and the open-work timber roof.

The later fine stained glass windows are the work of Dr. Douglas Strachan.
