Summary Description

The simplicity of the church is typical of many to be found in this part of Devon; it seems never to have served a population of any considerable size, and there has never been any cause to extend it or rebuild it on a larger scale. In its present form, therefore, the building represents a nineteenth-century reconstruction of a late-mediaeval church following its original plan and also, it seems, the original design with only minor variations.
