The Church of St Michael and All Angels, Stokenham
The Church of St Michael and All Angels, Stokenham
Over the years the church has been subjected to many changes both in structure and layout.

The church as it stands today, is a fine example of the perpendicular style of medieval architecture. It is built on the side of a hill so that its whole length can be seen from below and is dedicated to St Michael and All Angels, which was common practice for churches standing on elevated sites. It was, however, dedicated to St Barnabas and prior to that to St Humbert the Confessor.

The tower is 85 feet high, and is a good example of the South Devon type. The church is built of slate rubble with a little limestone and granite.
