Location :
Devon
North Devon
Challacombe
Grid Ref : SS6798840620
Summary : A medieval church rebuilt in 1850 and restored in 1874. Only the west tower is thought to be original. Tower probably early 16th century, the nave and chancel entirely rebuilt in 1850 and again restored 1874-5. Random rubble with ashlar dressings. Slate roofs with gable ends, apex gablets and cross to chancel end. West tower, nave, chancel, vestry and south porch.
More information : Holy Trinity Church, Challacombe was largely rebuilt in 1850, and was subsequently restored in 1874-5. Only the west tower remains of the earlier church (1).

The Tithe Map for Challacombe parish (2) contains a sketch of the earlier church marking its parish position. (1-2)

The church now occupies an isolated position within the parish: the existing village of Challacombe being some 1.2kms to the east-north-east, the only local settlement being Barton Town farmhouse and a string of cottages to the west. However, the Tithe Map shows further cottages to the immediate west of the church (their sites now within the churchyard).

Settlement earthworks have been recorded to the east and south-east (see NMR No: SS 64 SE 49). (3)
