Whitchurch is in the West Devon local authority area, and within Tavistock Deanery for ecclesiastical purposes. Due to the expansion of Tavistock in recent years, it is now considered part of Tavistock, but historically, it was part of Roborough Hundred. It is believed that a church was present in Whitchurch as early as the 11th century, and most likely built from the white elvan found at nearby Roborough Down. This may be the derivation of the village's name. The main church currently standing in Whitchurch - St. Andrew - is for the most part a 15th century building made from granite as well as elvan.
