All Saints Church, Portloe
Grade II Listed Church of England church, formerly lifeboat house. Bell is from the Dundella which sank in the Great Blizzard of 1891. Portloe is a United Church between the Church of England and the Methodist Church. Built as a lifeboat house in 1870 for £169 the thirty-three foot ten-oared lifeboat cost £500 and was paid for by a legacy to the RNLI by Jacob Gorfenkle, a Liverpool businessman. A new lifeboat house was built in 1877 but the lifeboat never launched and it was withdrawn in 1887. In 1896 the building was extensively altered and a bell turret were added and it was dedicated as All Saints Mission Church. By the 1990’s the congregations of Portloe’s church and chapel were finding it difficult to maintain the fabric of both buildings and on 17 May 1992, the building began its new life as a United Church. The congregations of the Methodist chapels at Trewartha, Portholland and Ruan have since joined. The church has featured in the rom' com' About Time for exterior shots.
