St Mary the Virgin, Combpyne
COMBPYNE. Set in the ‘coombe’ of Combpyne, St, Mary the Virgin Church serves the joint parish of Combpyne and Rousdon.
It dates back to the 13th century and is Grade ll* listed. Notable features include the saddleback tower roof, two of the three bells among the oldest in Devon and a drawing of a ship – possibly as old as the 14th century – on one of the walls in the nave.
St Mary’s is the smallest of the eight churches in the Axe Valley Mission Community but is well loved, welcoming and definitely worth a visit! We are open every day.
Apart from special seasonal services, there will usually be two every month, for full details see Pew News on the Axe Valley Mission Community website
