All Saints church, Poringland - the Octagon
All Saints church, Poringland - the Octagon
This extension, known as the Octagon, was added on the west side of the church in the early 20th century. It serves as a meeting room with accompanying vestry, toilet and kitchen facilities. These are used throughout the week by various adult and children's groups from within the church and by the wider community. A Post Office, open for 2 hours each on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings is also housed here. The postmaster refused permission to take an interior picture, "for security reasons", no less, although the room is bare except for a small table and two plastic chairs, one used by the postmaster and the other for customers > LinkExternal link. This "Post Office" replaces the services of the former Poringland Post Office & Stores > LinkExternal link.
