Notes: Ringmore's small church was built in the 13th century though 'there is some indication of Saxon work incorporated in the church'. This site feels the full force of the prevailing winds from the sea, less than a mile away. The yew grows on the north side of the church. The grassy bank on which it grows is thought to mark the former graveyard boundary.
