Prescott Baptist Chapel, Culmstock - Mid Devon

Simple C18 church in an isolated rural location. There are two other Baptist churches within a five mile radius which are closer to centres of population. Its physical problems are putting historic window fabric at risk, and could rapidly escalate into more serious repair problems if not remedied. The chapel has been sold and is no longer in use as a place of worship. Historic England has had discussions with the owner but work is required.
