St Mary the Virgin

Unknown item – Chaytor (1990)

This church is listed by Chaytor as one in which Pinwill work may be found on the basis of plans of work submitted for tender that no longer exist. There is quite a lot of modern woodcarving in Walkhampton church, including the lectern, reredos, font cover, choir stalls, pulpit and other items, all of which were the subject of a faculty dated 1937 held at DHC (PWDRO 2423/4). Further investigation is required to establish whether any of these were made by V. Pinwill.
