‪The tall tower of St Mary’s Church dominates the surrounding area. You can’t miss this church - it was designed to be seen! When it was built in the mid C15th, Totnes was the 16th richest town in England and the church reflects this. It is built of red sandstone which glows in the sunlight, especially after rain. The inside reflects the importance of Totnes. The highly carved civic pews date from the mid C17th and were made for the mayor and Aldermen of the town. They now stand in the centre of the aisle, having been moved here in the C19th. The wonderful stone rood screen is mid C15th and stretches across the nave and side aisles. It is one of the few stone screens in Devon and is regarded as one of the finest with its delicate tracery at the top. Don’t miss the equally elaborate stairs in the chancel which would have given access to the top of the rood screen. Also look up at the chancel roof with its carved wooden angels above the stone corbels. There are memorials to the great and good of Totnes. These included the memorial to William Smythe in St George’s Chapel who bought the priory ruins after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII and gifted them to the town to be used as a Guildhall. On the north wall is the splendid monument to Christopher Blackhall, a prominent Totnes citizen who died in 1633. Kneeling in a line below him are his four wives. The terracotta memorial at the back of the church near the font remembers the two Venning brothers, John and Walter who set up the Society for the Improvement of Prison Discipline in London. John Venning went on to establish the Russian Prison Society and worked for better prison and lunatic asylum conditions. It is definitely worth going into . The ‘Secret of St Mary’s’ booklet available in the church is £3. 50 and worth buying as it lists all sorts of things both inside and out that are so easily missed. ‬

‪Saint Mary's in Totnes is made from striking red sandstone, it was built in the 15th century. they think the octagonal font is 14th century. Near the nave is a fantastic rood screen. The church is a few minutes walk from the castle.

Don't miss the 16th century carved door.‬

‪Something magical about taking some time to consider those around you and your own well being. Relaxing and celebrating the quiet and peacefulness amongst the bustle of Totnes. What Luxury! Thank You St Mary's I feel recharged.‬

‪Excessive noise. Chiming every fifteen minutes, all the way through the night is ridiculous. Don’t even get me started on their bell ringing on Sundays, absolutely ruins the peace. Really drags down the town.‬

‪We visited the church whilst on holiday and found it to be a really pretty and interesting church. My step-dad’s great, great grandmother has a lovely memorial plaque in the church as she was the sexton there and it was lovely to see that. Lovely church, worth a visit.‬
