About Us

The Church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, is ancient, with fragments of it being Medieval, though it may be much older as the Saxons living in Devon had become Christianised long before the arrival of the Normans.  

  It is a Parish church of late C13 origins with C14 fabric, The north aisle is  C16 with a straight joint clearly visible between it and the chapel.

The tower was struck by lightning in the year 1879 and the church lay in ruins for 20 years.  The tower was partly re erected in 1892 and the church was opened again in 1904. 

Work on the tower was completed in 1910-1911  and the bells composing of a ring of 3 bells installed in a frame by Stokes in 1910. The bells are dated – treble 1758, second 1625, tenor 1658 were reinstalled.

Our church is badly in need of repairs and we are working hard to save it but we are a small rural community and  it is the same people who are supporting the church. .

Holy Trinity is a church with a warm and loving atmosphere,  from the moment you enter the door it encompasses you.  The local people rebuilt the tower in late 1800's  - we need to preserve our heritage.  Please help.
