Getting here

You are always sure of a warm welcome at our regular 10.30 am Sunday Service with a hot drink and time to chat afterwards.

Norman in origin, the nave, aisle, south transept and west tower were added in the 15th century with Victorian restorations (by Hine & Odgers and later by J D Sedding), including oak carvings of local wildlife by William Micklewright of Traske & Co, Somerset. Altar woodwork carved by Harry Hems of Exeter. Reredos carved by George Searle, London. Stained glass by Westlake, Burlison & Grylls, Bacon, Beer, and school of William Morris. Good example of a Hele organ. The wagon roof has numerous carved bosses including the famous mouse running through an empty headed person. There is a peal of 6 bells and a good team of ringers.

Monks from Plympton, Buckland and Buckfast celebrated mass here before the Reformation. Local Drake family worshipped in the Lady Chapel. The church-aided school maintains a close link with the church. The nearby Church House Inn became The Royal Oak named after the famous thousand year old tree growing opposite the lychgate.

We form part of the West Dartmoor Benefice which includes Yelverton, Sheepstor, Walkhampton and Princetown.
