St. George's parish church in Monkleigh: the choir screen has entirely gone but the screen to the south aisle is well carved. Parclose screen, arms of the St. Ledger', Butler, Rochford, Stapledon, Hankford, Knyvett, Clifton and other families on screens.

Pevsner, N., 1952, The Buildings of England: North Devon, 124 (Monograph). SDV336196.

Parclose screen divides Annery Chapel from south aisle. 'Late & rich' in detail, possibly circa 1537.
