Uffculme Church

St. Mary’s Church at Uffculme is a grade two listed building, and can trace its roots to the early 1100’s.

The steeple can be seen in the backdrop of many an Uffculme photograph, of any date.There are now eight bells, all of which were recast in 1927.Its mix of architectural styles seems to culminate in the Victorian adaptions carried out by the Exeter based architect, John Hayward.The rood screen which dates to the 15th century, is said to be the longest in Devon, at an impressive 67ft (20.4 metres).The font is carved from Caen stone after a design by Samuel Knight. It was given to St. Mary’s in 1843 and was sited at its current position in 1927.The organ dates from 1841 and after several alterations, improvements and moves, was placed in its current position in 1981.
