The church of St Andrew’s probably started life as the Manor chapel and is mentioned as early as 1199.

The church has gone through many refurbishments and subsequent strippings out over its history, a particularly turbulent time being the 16th century.

However, it now displays some of the finest roof carvings in Devon – with 171 roof bosses in total!

A fine example of the Three Hares can be seen in the centre row of the South Aisle – you wish to take a torch with you to see this!
