Church of St Mary, Charleton - South Hams

Parish church. C15 heavily restored in 1849-50. Slatestone rubble walls; windows largely of Caen stone, slate roofs. The fittings are all Victorian and the octagonal font, pulpit and desk are also of Caen stone. High level tower repointed. Rainwater goods rusting and undersized and failing to get the water away from the church resulting in cracking and staining to the interior. Internal decorations poor. The church is generally well maintained and slate roof repairs have been completed. However, significant repairs still need to be undertaken.
