Davidstow: The Church Building

The large church was heavily restored in 1875 and little remains of the original. It comprises a chancel, nave, and north and south aisles. The arcades are each of five obtuse arches, supported by tall monolith pillars which are held together by wooden tie beams across the nave. There is a south porch and a blocked north door. The tower is later than the church; it is of three stages and is buttressed on the square. The parapet has no crenulation, and is surmounted by stump pinnacles. There are bench ends remaining in the south aisle. One shows a man with bagpipes, one a saint, one a lion and one a kneeling person.
