EAST PORTLEMOUTH EAST PORTLEMOUTH VILLAGE SX 73 NW 8/24 Church of St. Winwaloe 26.1.67 G.V. II *

Parish church. C15 rebuild of C14 church restored in early C20. Rendered slatestone walls. Gabled slate roof. Plan: nave, north and south aisle and transept, north porch and west tower. The tower is probably C14 and the transepts may also incorporate some C14 fabric but otherwise the church was rebuilt in the C15. Exterior: 2 stage crenellated west tower without pinnacles. Set-back buttresses to the lowest stage. 5-sided stair turret on north side. 2-centred arched west doorway of South Hams type. Restored 3-light Perpendicular window above. Belfry lights have simple traceried heads. The north aisle, transept and 2 storey porch are all crenellated. The porch has a richly moulded granite doorway with 4- centred arch and square hoodmould. Above it is a single cinquefoiled C15 light, now blocked, with another arched light above and slightly to the right of that. At the left-hand side of the porch stone steps lead up to a small stone 4-centre arched doorway on the 1st floor. The windows to the north aisle and transept are complete restorations in the Perpendicular style, as is the east chancel window. The south transept window, although restored, retains its original moulded stone jambs. Otherwise the south side of the church is the same as the north, although without the porch. Interior: the porch has a floor of slates set on end in a chequer design. South doorway has a moulded granite frame with segmental arch. Internal walls are all plastered. 2 identical 5 bay granite arcades of Pevsner A-type piers with moulded cup capitals and 4-centred arches. Tower arch has plain plastered jambs and a moulded double arched head, the apex of which is cut off by the wagon roof to the nave. This is a medieval wagon roof with carved ribs and bosses. The roofs to the aisles and transepts have been renewed. Medieval rood screen with good carving but the coving has been removed. It has early colour on it and painted panels depicting figures of saints. C15 octagonal font with quatrefoils and shields carved on the panels. No memorials. Modern tile floor and circa early C20 pews and fittings.
