More about this scene

There is thought to have been a Saxon church on this site before AD700, and the Norman structure, dedicated to St Andrew, is built on Saxon foundations. The unusual octagonal lantern was installed in the 15th century when Colyton was one of the three richest wool towns in Devon. The clock was made in 1710 by Lewis Pridham of Crediton. The north aisle was enlarged in 1888.
