St Uvelus

John Dando Sedding carried out a sensitive restoration of this church in 1889 (Beacham & Pevsner, 2014), and installed several of his signature ‘cobweb’ windows. At that time it was surrounded by a churchtown, but this was largely demolished to make way for a WWII airfield (St Eval, 2016). That is now covered in massive aerials for an HF transmitting station, leaving the church in isolation on top of the plateau.

Unknown item – Chaytor (1990)

On a visit in August 2016 there were no carved pieces of work that seemed of the right age and style to be the work of the Pinwills.
