Project Description

Church of the Holy Cross, Cruwys Morchard, Devon: Chancel Screens

Following a disastrous fire in 1697, the church was rebuilt and furnished. Maybe under the influence of the Lord of the Manor’s family, still there now after 700 years, some aspects of the work are of great quality for such a remote church in a poor county. Here the Grinling Gibbons style carved lime capitals and modillions can be seen following our recent major scheme of conservation and cleaning as well as an unusual frieze of yew wood.
