Ashton Parish Church of St John the Baptist

Devon & Cornwall Notes & Queries 9 (1916-17) pp.101-107.


Hugh R. Watkin

Prepared by Michael Steer

The church of St John Baptist is according to John Betjeman - the typical Devon church at its best ... [with] rich colouring ...and lavish carved woodwork. Notable features are the stained glass windows, the bench ends and the monument to Sir George Chudleigh, of Place in the parish. The poet Lady Mary Chudleigh (1656-1710) is buried there.
