Rose Ash is a small village situated within the parish of Rose Ash in the South Molton district in North Devon.


The village stands 6 miles East South East of the market town of South Molton and was formerly called Ralph-Esse. The parish contains the hamlets of Yard and part of Ash Mill.


Although Rose Ash is small with no shop or public house, it has a vibrant community that revolves around the beautiful church of St Peter and the village hall. The village hall is very well equipped and is used widely by the community. It is available to hire for private functions.


The village is set amongst beautiful scenery with stunning views across much of the surrounding countryside.

Coronavirus update
ref church services

Dear all


Regrettably we have just been advised that the Archbishop has announced the suspension of all public services in the Church of England until further notice, with the exception of baptisms, weddings and funerals.  Therefore there will be no services at any of the Edgemoor churches until further notice.  


Our church buildings will remain open for private prayer - although you may like to take the precaution of not touching anything if at all possible.  Please wash your hands thoroughly before and after your visit.  We are thinking of different ways to encourage you in your home worship and of maintaining fellowship in prayer throughout the Edgemoor group and will keep you informed. 


Keep an eye on the C. of E. and Exeter Diocese websites for streamed acts of worship.  


Please feel free to call us anytime if we can help in anyway during this difficult time, especially if you are in isolation.  Above all KEEP THE FAITH!


God bless you.


With our love and prayers


Alastair and Alison.
