The Anglican church is St Nectan's Church which has the highest tower in Devon, built in the late Perpendicular style. The church is large and was built in the mid 14th century. Notable features include the fine Norman font, the rood screen (the finest in north Devon) and the old wagon roofs. The monuments include an elaborate medieval tomb-chest, a small brass of 1610 and a metal-inlaid lid of a churchyard tomb of 1618. This article concerns dispute over complex church seating arrangements. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
