Church of St Michael, Spreyton

One of a group of Churches on the Dartmoor fringes known for 'Green Man' carvings. Largely C15th, with the wagon braced roof of the chancel specifically dated 1451. (see EH listing)( http://www.spreyton.org.uk/church_and_churchyard.htm

There are however a number of features clearly dating from much earlier periods like the arch between chancel and organ north aisle and filled doorway in north aisle rescued or re-incorporated from an Norman building
