Church of St Andrew, Exton

St Andrews Church was originally set up in 1864 in a rented cob and thatched barn. Over time this was fitted out to become an attractive local church with an organ and choir.
Sadly this church was swept away in the severe floods in 1960. The village was determined to rebuild a new church and held a number of events to raise money for a new church to supplement the insurance proceeds.
The new church was completed in 1963 and dedicated in September that year. That event was celebrated with a widely attended flower and musical 50th anniversary festival in September 2013.


Exton is a village in East Devon. It is served by Exton station, where there is an hourly train service to either Exeter Central or Exmouth.
Facilities include a couple of bed and breakfasts, a church St Andrew's), a village hall, a petrol station and a pub restaurant and hostelry (The Puffing Billy).
