Church of St Mary, Berry Pomeroy - South Hams

Parish church. Rebuilt in C15 restored in the late C17 and 1878-79. Tower has C13 or C14 west doorway. Stone rubble with freestone dressings and slate roofs, tower rendered. Nave and chancel in one. The church is generally very well maintained and a number of significant repairs have been undertaken. Despite this, the tower remains damp with problems with the render, and the main roofs also need work. The congregation applied in 2017 for grant aid from the Heritage Lottery Fund but was not successful.
