The Church of St Nectan in Stoke near Hartland, Devon
An early church was built here in about 1170, but the current building, dating from around 1360. Only the font from the earlier church survives. The tower is 128 feet high (about 39 metres) and has for centuries been a landmark to sailors at sea. It was built about sixty years after the rest of the church and it contains a peal of six bells, last rehung in 1952, weighing nearly tons.

This magnificent church is sometimes referred to as the "Cathedral of North Devon".
