Church of St Michael, Shebbear - Torridge

Rural Devon church. Most significant feature is mid-C12 south doorway. Plain nave and south aisle; simple rendered tower. Damp interior with carpet hiding salt damage to floor. Vegetation needs to be removed from the external ground gutter and there is a poor vestry valley gutter arrangement, worsening the internal problems.
