The church is open during daylight hours and offers a peaceful atmosphere away from the busy world.  It has a welcoming feel and the excellent lighting shows the wonderful roof carvings; the ringing chamber is open so you can see the ancient ‘hatchments’ and unusual memorial.  Take a look at the 18th century clock on your right as you come in – it had languished in the clock tower for generations before being lovingly restored.

Key Information:

About the Church:

Nestled in one of Devon’s best kept villages – Talaton – St James the Great Church is open every day during daylight hours.  The church at Talaton is a very fine Grade I church, outstanding even in an area of the country graced with many other beautiful churches.  For nearly a thousand years there has been a place of Christian worship at this site and it is fairly certain that a small Norman church stood here in the 12th century. Its late Norman font still stands in the current church, much of which dates from the 15th century, replacing a smaller, simpler church.
