The living is a discharged vicarage, in the peculiar jurisdiction of the Bishop of Exeter, rated in the king's books at £16. 11. 10½., and in the patronage of Sir Stafford Northcote, Bart., the Rev. John Templar, and the Rev. F. Belfield, alternately. The church contains an ancient wooden screen, and at Watton there was formerly a chantry chapel. There is a place of worship for Baptists.
