The current church dates from 1511-1524, although the tower is older and dates from the 12th century. Originally it was part of Launceston Priory, but after the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539 it became the parish church of St Mary Magdalene. It was extensively restored in 1894 when a new side chapel was also added.

The two striking features about this church for me were the amazing carvings which cover the outside of the church and the stained glass windows.
