Dean Prior Church holds some events plus AGM meetings at THE STUDIO/ PARISH HALL, Higher Dean Prior, near Buckfastleigh in Devon. Grid Ref: SX729647 (not far from Dean Forge).
The Studio was left to the Vicar and Churchwarden of Dean Prior to be used as a Parish Hall by the artist John Thorpe, who contributed to Punch and The Windsor magazines. He also painted many water colours of Dean Prior. More information on him can be found in the Church Miscellany.
The maintenance of this building has now been taken over by the Parish Council. NB The Parish Hall has recently been refurbished with disabled access ramp and toilet.
