The History of St. George’s

St George’s Church Modbury is an Anglican parish church and was formerly a dependency of Modbury Priory. Built mainly in the early 14th Century, it is a Grade 1 listed building; a spacious and handsome structure, with a tower, containing six bells, and crowned by a spire, rising to a height of about 134 feet.

These pages try to trace and set out the history of the building and surrounding churchyard. Grateful thanks is given to all of those who have provided and compiled the information, especially to the Modbury History Society.  Once this work is completed, it will be made available as a printed and bound book.
