Buckfastleigh.
Buckland in the Moor, St. Peter. Previously in the "Unknown" section, Colin MacDermott had asked for help in identifying a church in a photo taken by his father in 1951. At the time he was living in Swindon, but his work took him across the south-west of England. Thanks to Phil Draper for the identification. SX 720 731. Link.

Chudleigh, St. Martin & St. Mary. SX 867 794. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. An un-posted postcard, this one provided no clues at all, and had languished in the Unknown section for several years. Janet Gimber has identified it as Chudleigh church, and provided this link to a photo taken from a similar angle. For additional proof, see Google Earth for the relationship between the church and the field walls. From Steve Bulman's Collection.

Another view, and a moving CWWG memorial. SX 84605 77434. All Andrew Ross (2018). Link. Grade II listed.
Churston Ferrers, St. Mary the Virgin. Two additional views - 1, 2, three of the interior - 1, 2, 3, and the font. This was Agatha Christie's church, who paid for the East window - apparently she didn't like the old one! SX 904 564. All Dennis Harper (2018). Grade II* listed.
Clapworthy, former church, now in residential use. It must have closed prior to 1976, as a map of that date doesn't show a church. Older maps have a church or chapel (1957-8), Mission Chapel (1905), and St. John's Church (1889). SS 676 241. Martin Richter (2011).

Cofton, St. Mary, on Church Road. SX 968 802. Andrew Ross.
Coldridge, St. Matthew. Curiously, I had received scans of two different postcards of an interior (1, 2), from Judy Flynn and Brian Curtis, within days of each other. I suspected immediately that they were of the same church, but had no idea of where it might be. One postcard had the word "Coleridge" printed on it, and it seems that this was the old spelling for what is now Coldridge. Greg Mishevski and Simon Edwards obliged with the identification, and confirmation that they were indeed of the same church, and provided the following links - link1, link2, link3. There are some older references to the church dedication being St. Mary (Simon refers to a 1919 Bligh Bond book). SS 698 076. Grade I listed.

Dunstone, the Methodist Church, which dates from 1833. Another view. SX 714 757. Both James Murray.
Dunterton, All Saints. Previously in the "Unknown" section, Gerry Porter wanted this church in south-west England identified. Taken in 1998, it has distinctive large pinnacles, and looked to me to be in the Cornish tradition. Janet Gimber identified it, and to salve my pride, explained that it was almost on the border with Cornwall! SX 3759 7930. Gerry Porter. Another view,
Paul E. Barnett (2018).

East Buckland, St. Michael. Another view. SS 677 313. Both Martin Richter (2016). Link. Grade II listed, which says that the tower is C15, but is otherwise mostly of a Victorian re-build.
East Down, St. John the Baptist. The altar, and a window. There is another building in the churchyard, which has its own grade II listing, and is described a
s a Church Room or Sunday School. SS 601 418. Link. The Grade II* listing mentions surviving fabric from the 13th century, and that the church was re-modelled when the south aisle was added in the 15th. Geograph has many more photos. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1902), now in residential use. SS 600 414. There was an earlier chapel nearby, shown on the 1886 O.S. 1:2500 map.

George Nympton, St. George. Another view , and the porch. SS 700 229. Grade II* listed. The former Providence Bible Christian Chapel. Another view. The date-stone isn't too clear, but probably shows a date of 1862. Old maps show a simple rectangular building - so the date-stone was probably over the original front door. At some point before 1973 it had become a Methodist Chapel, and it still shows as such on a 1974-6 map. Closure date not certain. The chapel is in the churchyard, so both share the same grid reference - SS 700 230. All Martin Richter (2011).
Georgeham, St. George. SS 463 397. Chris Emms (2011). Link.
Great Torrington, St. Michael & All Angels. Much of the present church dates from 1651, the previous building having been "blowen up with powder", according to a plaque. More about this in the grade II* listing. SS 495 191. Graeme Harvey (2011). Link. The local cemetery has two mortuary chapels, CoE at the left, and Non-conformist at the right. Built before the map of 1887, they probably date to the establishment of the cemetery in 1855. Additional views of the CoE chapel (in the foreground), and of the Non-conformist. SS 487 194. This 1930 aerial view (scroll to the bottom) shows the chapels in the left foreground, and also, near the bottom right corner, the now-demolished chapel of the Torrington Union Workhouse, which stood at circa SS 4863 1919. Link. The former Bible Christian Chapel on South Street. Its dates are uncertain, but it was built before the 1887 O.S. map was compiled, and the congregation seems to have left before 1904, as the map of that year bears no annotation for the building. SS 4944 1907. All Martin Richter (2018).

Weare Giffard, Holy Trinity. Previously (and for a long time) in the "Unknown" section. Roger Hopkins found a box of Victorian negatives, and the only clue to the whereabouts of the photos was one negative labelled "Moortown Church".

My appreciation to Greg Mishevski, who finally solved the mystery. SS 467 221. Link.
