Interlocking daisy wheels

St. Saviour’s was dedicated as a Chapel of Ease in 1372, but it may be earlier in date. The church was enlarged in the late 14th/early 15th century and has been repaired and refurbished several times since. It is described as having one of the best interiors in Devon. Features include a carved and painted rood screen and a carved stone pulpit.

The graffiti is on the pillars and consists of several compass drawn daisy wheels, some Marian marks and various initials.
