Short History of Church and Bells

St Michael & All Angels Church is a beautiful rural church. Recent archaeology showed evidence of an earlier Saxon church on the site. Three medieval graves found are from at least two phases.
Although restored and refitted in 1893 the building is packed with history. It has retained many of its original Norman features with additions from the 14th and 15th centuries. The beautifully modelled plaster coat of arms dated 1704 celebrates two church wardens of the time and is thought to be the work of John Abbot of Frithelstock. The building is surrounded by a large, open churchyard.

The church has a three-stage, unbuttressed, square tower, in dressed grey granite blocks with four plain pinnacles. The four bells are all listed: two of the bells are early medieval. The other two are by Johannes Stadler of Chulmleigh, 1714. All are inscribed. The oak frame with timber headstocks is by Henry Stokes of Woodbury, 1902. The bells were rehung and rededicated by the Bishop of Plymouth in 1991, and were rung regularly for services. Now that the tower has settled after the 2016 project, the Bell Team can now start practising again and we look forward to hearing our bells ring out once more.
