Crediton Parish House and Downes House

Visit | Crediton Parish Church

Wednesday 27 April 2011 - 10:30 until 16:00

The visit starts with a guided tour of the Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross, listed as ‘Four Star’ in England’s 1000 Best Churches by Simon Jenkins. Parts of the Norman church remain, but it was largely rebuilt in the 15th century Perpendicular style. In the afternoon, members of the local history society lead a tour of Downes House – a Palladian mansion that is the ancestral home of General Sir Redvers Buller of Boer War fame.
