St. Mary’s

St Marys Church CollageSt Mary's is one of the most beautiful Parish Churches in Devon. First Consecrated in 1259 it is Grade 1* listed. The chequer board stonework in the tower is unique in Devon and the 15th century  Rood Screen is thought by many writers to be the finest in Devon. Untouched by the restorer's hand, the paintwork and gold leaf are now 600 years old. There is a peel of 6 bells in the tower which are rung regularly before services and at weddings and funerals. Their sound and quality of ringing attract may visiting teams of ringers.
