Crediton parish church, or to give it its full name - the "Church of the Holy Cross and the Mother of Him who hung thereon". This is a particularly grand parish church and this belies the fact that in the 10th century there was a cathedral on this site. Nothing remains of that and the oldest part of the current church is the base of the tower which dates back to Norman times.
Most of the existing structure was built after the 1400s. During this time the site was an abbey but with the Dissolution carried out by Henry VIII the site was bought by the townsfolk.
