Church of St Thomas à Becket, Bridford, Teignbridge - Dartmoor (NP)

A medieval granite church in an exposed location on the southern fringe of Dartmoor National Park. The pointing on the tower is failing and falling, and this is allowing water ingress into the fabric, while rainwater disposal is inadequate. The church was awarded a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Grant in July 2016.
