The parish church of St Mary's is a rather grand affair and is often referred to as a 'mini Exeter Cathedral'. There are certain similarities, for example the cruciform plan with twin towers forming transept. Even the interior has a few nods to the cathedral with its fan vaulted ceiling.
The church dates back to the 1350s, although the site was consecrated 100 years prior to this. It was sympathetically restored during the 1850s by the architect William Butterfield.
