Tower of a C15 church of which the rest was demolished in 1836
for road widening. It is now on an island site. Squared
Plymouth stone with a pointed granite arch over a C20 plank
door in the south-west elevation. Slightly battered, in 2
stages delineated by moulded string courses, one below a
battlemented parapet, the other below the upper stage which
has 2-light pointed-arched windows to the top of each side and
large clocks to the west and east sides. The north-east side
bears traces of the roof line of the former nave, and a
pointed-arched recess with a small trefoil-headed window. To
the base of this side is a granite plaque with the
"This tower was refurbished in 1972-1973 by the people of
Newton Abbot in memory of Councillor Arthur Claude Shobbrook,
