More about this scene


Caption for Broadwoodwidger, The Church C1950: Standing above the valley of the River Wolf, the Church of St Nicholas is first recorded in 1288 when a Parochial Quota of £13 was paid to the Deanery of Tavistock. The chancel arch and font date from this time, the tower is late 14th-century and the south aisle was added during a restoration of 1531. In 1965 the nave roof succumbed to the ravages of Death Watch Beetle and collapsed, necessitating the raising of £10,000 for repairs.
