Aveton Giffard Church

Devon & Cornwall Notes & Queries Vol. 4, no. 1, (1906). pp. 13-15.


Maxwell Adams

Prepared by Michael Steer

The parish church of St Andrew at Aveton Gifford has been described by W. G. Hoskins as 'one of the oldest and most interesting churches in Devon'. It was largely a cruciform building with a central tower and was completed in about 1250. In 1942 it was, in the church log, said to be 'well cared for'. In the following year it was almost destroyed in a raid by a group of German fighter bombers. It was rebuilt by 1957, but subsequent structural problems led to the tower being reduced to two thirds of its original height. However, the two-story porch survived, with its richly moulded 13th-century doorways. Maxwell Adam's well illustrated article is a treasure trove of information about the furnishings and memorials in the wonderful old building before the tragedy.
