Church of Holy Trinity, Dunkeswell - East Devon

Parish church, built on the site of Dunkeswell Abbey Church in 1842. Local stone and flint rubble with Hamstone dressings and detail and a slate roof. The roofs have had substantial leaks which have caused significant water ingress. This has damaged the internal plaster. The congregation reroofed the church in 2015, but considerable interior work is still required and glazing is also in poor condition. Discussions over the future of the church are underway with the Dunkeswell Abbey Preservation Trust.
