Crediton Church, Devon

The massive Church of the Holy Cross in Crediton, Devon is most famous because this town was the birthplace of Saint Boniface.  There had been a Cathedral on this site until 1050 when Bishop Leofric moved the Diocese to Exeter.

The heavily built Norman church we see today was started around 1150 and then heavily rebuilt in 1410.  After the Dissolution the church was bought by the townspeople of Crediton and a council of twelve governors was set up who still administer the church to this day.
