GV II*

Tower of a C15 church of which the rest was demolished in 1836 for road widening. It is now on an island site. Squared Plymouth stone with a pointed granite arch over a C20 plank door in the south-west elevation. Slightly battered, in 2 stages delineated by moulded string courses, one below a battlemented parapet, the other below the upper stage which has 2-light pointed-arched windows to the top of each side and large clocks to the west and east sides. The north-east side bears traces of the roof line of the former nave, and a pointed-arched recess with a small trefoil-headed window. To the base of this side is a granite plaque with the inscription: "This tower was refurbished in 1972-1973 by the people of Newton Abbot in memory of Councillor Arthur Claude Shobbrook, JP CA who died on July 17 July 1970."
