“to those we owe we our freedom to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

If you look at the memorial to the fallen from the 1914 1918 world war you will see that there are many sets of the same family names.
It made me think that it was highly likely that many brothers, or even father and sons , gave up their lives for freedom

“Highlight of Totnes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

A church of rare age that feels very tied to the town's history, particularly with the exhibit of historic photographs of the town. A really unusual church with a fascinating history, worth a look.

“Very nice church - worth a short visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We love visiting churches in English town and villages - we do hate paying the extortionate fees to visit some of the cathedrals, though.

St Mary's Church was very nice. It is so close to the High Street that it so easy to visit. The highlight is the centuries old stone screen.

“Ancient church”

Over a thousand years old, this church is like stepping back into the past. Beautiful flower arrangements everywhere, too.

“History Alive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Historic church but one which is very much alive. I particularly enjoyed the photographs of Totnes shops from early 1900s comparing them with the same shops today.
