Long Description:
An exciting sight for miles around. A small church (40 by 14 ft) with a tower on a steep cliff of volcanic stone, standing all alone with its front not 3 ft from the precipice. The site must have been of importance long before, for the walls of an earthwork surround the rock. The tower, 32 ft high, is embattled and unbuttressed. The body of the church has battlements on a corbel-table. The earliest record of the church is before 1150. It belonged to Tavistock Abbey, which in 1232 established an annual fair here. There was a consecration by Bishop Stapledon in 1319. Restored in 1889-90 at the expense of the Duke of Bedford.
The church is always open for visitors. Services are held in the summer months on Sunday evenings at 6.30pm.
