Feature Sets

This essentially Perpendicular church has a chancel with a small vestry on the NE, a nave with S porch and S aisle, a N transept and W tower. It was restored in 1862-3 (Historic England listing:1305679). The font is the only 12thc. feature.


The Domesday Book records that Monkleigh was held by Ordwulf (of Tehidy) before the Conquest. By 1086 it was held by Alfred (the butler) and the tenant-in-chief was Count Robert of Mortain.
