St. Mary’s
Berry Pomeroy

The Church of St. Mary, Berry Pomeroy, is an attractive building rebuilt on the site of an earlier church. It was constructed by Sir Richard de Pomeroy, who died in 1496 and whose tomb is in the N.E. corner of the chancel.

 

The old altar rails and altar table, now in the North aisle, are 17th Century; as are the Royal Arms of William and Mary. King William III landed at Brixham from Holland in 1688, and is thought to have held his first Parliament in ‘Parliament Cottages’ at Longcombe, less than a mile from the Church.
