Church of St James, Arlington - North Devon

Parish church. Late C15 or early C16 tower with some C19 work. Set in the landscape of Arlington Court, which is owned by the National Trust. Options are being explored by the very small congregation, possibly in conjunction with the neighbouring National Trust. Blocked downpipes are causing significant damage to the interior and roofing repairs are also required. The congregation made an unsuccessful application to the Listed Places of Worship Roof Fund in 2016.
