Churston Ferrers is a historic civil parish within Torbay. It contains the two villages of Churston, a coastal village, and the now larger Galmpton. It is situated between Paignton and Brixham. The main church of Brixham is St. Mary's, about a mile from the sea. It is the third on the site (which was an ancient Celtic burial ground). The original wooden Saxon church was replaced by a stone Norman church that was in its turn built over in about 1360. Many of the important townspeople are buried in the churchyard.
