St Peter's Church is impressively sited above the river and was almost entirely rebuilt in 1852-53, except for the medieval west tower, in a High Victorian manner. Strangely the rebuilding arose partly as a result of a doctrinal clash between the Vicar and the Bishop of Exeter around 1850. For reasons undisclosed the latter considered himself beaten, and was eventually to assist in the rebuilding with some of his own money. Other details: Plan, photograph.
