Title:The Church of All Saints, East Budleigh
Originator:Bushfield, T. N.
Summary:Parish church St. Swithin. Rebuilt and reconsecrated in 1409, restored by vicar there (1846-1898) who removed the medieval rood screen and repainted it in 1862. Parts remain of the ancient perpendicular screen. Woodbury accounts for 1556-1557 show an item paid for "making of the ymage of seint swythune". Most probably carved in wood and supplied to replace one destroyed in the previous reign (Edward VI). Accounts also include payment to the clockmaker of Budleigh for his fee in 1563-1564.
