Geocache Description:

St Gabriel's Church was built c.1868 to a design originally intended for a school and a schoolmaster's house, but it soon became used as a church and a church school.It was formerly known as Postbridge Church of England School.


 

The Church of St Gabriel Postbridge is a lovely little church in the moorland village, constructed of Dartmoor Granite in 1868 by Stone of Chagford. It served as a school as well as a church for the first 65 years, with wooden shutters dividing the school from the sanctuary. With the decline of the tin mining in the area the school was closed down and in 1934 the whole building was dedicated as the village church. 

 

There are no gravestones in the grounds so I have taken the information from the lychgate. Please take the time to take a look inside the church as there is plenty to see.

The above coordinates bring you to the lychgate where you can find the information needed to give you the final coordinates where you will find the cache.
