SAMPFORD COURTENAY Devon
St. Andrew

Included in the restoration was:

  • new north chapel;
  • choir vestry and organ chamber; window tracery;
  • building up altar steps;
  • installing altar, tiles and tall reredos in Lady chapel;
  • chancel arch made;
  • pillars “straightened”;
  • new roofs;
  • west gallery removed;
  • reseating.

Note that, despite appearances, it seems Fellowes Prynne did NOT design the screen; this was fashioned by Herbert Reed using fragments of the old screen as a basis for his design.
