The church of St Christopher is at the far end of the village from the main road.
HISTORY There has been a church on this site since the 11th century, although nothing of the original building is now visible. It is thought that this church served an area covering not only Winfrith Newburgh, but also East and West Lulworth, Coombe Keynes and other local areas. There has been rebuilding or extensions to the building in the 12th, 13th, 15th, 17th and 19th centuries as well as other more recent additions. It is a beautiful building in its simplicity with many notable features. There is a recently re- written History Guide available in the Church.
