A lovely simple 15th century church majorly restored inside in the19th century.
On the outside the stone itself is worth a good view, a well-coloured almost flint stone. The tower especially is well built and the flat churchyard… well, Devon hardly ever does flat, so take the opportunity to enjoy this one.
Inside one of the main delights is the 19th century windows with their coloured glass and the glazing bars. Catch them on a sunny day and the light is fantastic.
There are other delights; the nicely-carved 17th century pulpit, the fun roofbosses and a colourful royal coat of arms.
My personal favourite has to be the two medieval stained heads, such mysterious survivors; one of them probably portrays Christ.
The church has a well-loved atmosphere; the community obviously cares for this one so well, and it is a real delight.
