A name index for this paper follows the first index

Prepared by Michael Steer

BROADHEMBURY takes its name from Hembury Fort on a spur of the Blackdown Hills. The name means "the high burh." It is one of the most attractive cob-and-thatch villages in Devon. The church (St. Andrew) is late 14th to early 15th century, with a fine tower, good window tracery, and pleasant Beer stone arcades. The south chancel aisle was the chapel of the Drewes of Grange. The Victorian interior of the church might have been beautiful had its restorers been content to leave things alone. The Rev. Augustus Toplady, famous as the author of the hymn Rock of Ages, was vicar, 1768-78. The paper was read by Mr Charles Tucker, then Secretary of the British Archaeological Institute.
