Welcome to St Michael and All Angels Church, Marwood
The church appears to have been originally a Cross church of the first pointed style.
An extract from the Register of Walter de Stapleton, Bishop of Exeter 1307-26 Latin Translation as follows;
At a later period the North wall was replaced by the piers and arches, the transept converted into the aisle, and the chantry added at the East end, probably by a member of the Chichester family.
The screen separating the Chantry from the Aisle bears the name of John Beapul, Rector of the Parish in the reign of Henry VIII, and is instanced by Rickman as one of the best specimens of a rood screen in the country. Presumably a full screen at this date 1894. Marwood bells date from 1771.
