Church of St Petrock, Petrockstow - Torridge

Parish church. C14 aisle and C15 tower, the rest rebuilt in 1878-80. There are some problems with the roof covering, especially verges and eaves, parapets and flashings. The rainwater goods and drainage need repair and overhauling. This has led to water ingress and salt damage to the interior. The parish made an application for funding under the Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship scheme in 2017 but was not successful.
