Grad II*
3m NW of Ashburton

A particularly lovely small church situated on Dartmoor dating from the 15th or early 16th century. It has a perfectly proportioned interior with a particularly fine Norman font.  Its splendid rood-screen with painted figures on the lower panels and black and white figures on the reverse, its fine wagon roof and Royal Coat of Arms of George II are all well worth seeing.  Overall an absolute must to visit
