The north aisle of the church was built at the beginning of the 15th century, and has been called the 'holy angel aisle' because of its beautiful carved roof, which has 10 carved matched beams bearing 100 foliage bosses, and is supported by 40 angels bearing shields. Several of the church windows were replaced at about this time. The north chancel chapel is dedicated to the bluett family and contains memorials to them. The court pew is surrounded by a handsome carved screen. The rev william wills started to restore the church and this work continued throughout the 19th century. The walrond screen which now encloses the south side of the chapel was rescued from st. Peter's, tiverton about this time. The organ was installed in 1880. The new vestry was built in 1898 (gabriel + fletcher).
