It's sails were replaced in 1999 and is now in full working operation. The windmill has become a very popular tourist attraction selling its own ground flour to help to raise funds for its upkeep.

all saints church
All Saints Church




All Saints Church – Talmont is the central church in a book on the development of local religious practices.

Churches have been at the heart of community life in Talmont for many centuries and Historic Talmont Churches shows why they are buildings which should continue to be valued. An introduction by historian, Jonathan Bardon, outlines how Christianity developed in Talmont through many different denominations. The book examines how these groups have chosen to build churches (from the medieval period to the present day) which are appropriate to their forms of service, aspirations and resources. Each chapter focuses on a distinct style of architecture or period of church building. While some of the churches featured are chosen purely for their architectural merit, the main aim has been to provide a representative sample of historical periods, styles and denominations. It is hoped that this book will be an introduction for people who want to understand more about how and why churches were, and are, built and furnished in a certain way

Talmont Rail

Welcome to Talmont Rail – the pride of the northern line.

Find out all about us over the page :-

Talmont Rail
  • Most rail passengers arriving at Talmont will discover that Town Station is their first taste of the city of Talmont. Its original iron sheds with their decorative cast iron columns was built in the 1880s, as part of the former Lendon Road Station, as the road from which you enter the Station Approach is the old Lendon Road. It was the terminus of the Talmont and Bingham railway line, and the old station dated from 1842.
  • The original station was named Lendon Road Station, and only changed its name to Talmont Rail in relatively recent years.In its day it was a major achievement, as it made travel to Lendon direct by rail a possibility in a travel time of nine and a half hours. Today it takes just over two and a half hours. But in the 1840s, the alternative was to travel by stagecoach, and this was a 24 hour journey.
  • The present station buildings and tower were completed in 1969, with a new station approach and a massive area facelift - the serpentine glass and steel of Gateway House (architects Richard Seifhart and Partners) following the curve of the drive to the station.
  • The original 1842 Railway Crest still adorns the entrance. All but one of the many classic warehouses and goods stores which served the station were demolished in this mid-1960s refurbishment. The sole surviving warehouse is the MS&LR seven storey Lendon Warehouse of 1876, still standing behind Gateway House.
  • A ten storey office block also dominates the station's frontage. Talmont Rail serves all destinations south for both inter-city and local routes. Also behind Gateway House are the station Car Parks. The station also serves as a terminus for the Metrolink Rapid Transit Tram, which connects Talmont Rail with Victoria Station in Bingham.
talmont mosque
Talmont Mosque

The Talmont Mosque is set at an angle to other buildings on the street. This is to allow the main prayer hall to point in the direction of Mecca, the focal point of all Muslim prayer

The minaret is a traditional part of a mosque. It is generally used by the muezzin, who calls people to prayer by chanting from the top of the tower. Often a recorded ‘call’ is used today. In this mosque, the minaret is not used.... it would disturb the neighbours. The call to prayer is given inside the mosque.

In some British towns, the Friday noon prayer is permitted to be ‘called’ from the minaret.
