On our way to Sidmouth we stopped off at the inland town of Colyton to look around the church. It has a Saxon cross dating from the time of King Alfred and a cheery looking Sir John Pole reclining at ease on his coffin. He has no dog at his heels but a very obliging wife resting at his back! Wandering round the town we saw this impressive gateway, like something from 'Le Grand Meaulnes'.
