St DISEN’S, Bradninch

St DISEN’S, Bradninch

Large and graceful parish church which contains a magnificent painted rood screen, which dates from 15th century. Originally dedicated to St. Denis, the church became more popularly known as St. Disen’s in the late 19th century. According to legend St. Disen was a 7th century Irish hermit who was visiting the area, found no place of worship and so built the first church with his own hands. There is also a dedication to the Boone family, who emigrated from Bradnich to the USA in the 18th century and whose most famous son was Colonel Daniel Boone, woodsman, Indian fighter etc.
