St Mary's was originally a Priory Church established in the 11th Century as an out reach of Malmesbury Abbey. There is a 14th century screen, some panels having been restored to show their original ,paintings of Saints.

The Church serves a community to the North West of Barnstaple which has a 'village feel' whilst being part of the town with regard to the wider Church community.
