St Michael de Rupe. (Brentor Church)

Brentor Church is very well known landmark in Devon, dating back to 1330. Its picturesque 360 degree views cover postcards, Christmas cards and prints across the surrounding villages. Though when i visited, I found it covered in scaffolding, whilst they carried out roof repairs. It is suggested by that the last roof repairs on the church took place in 1890. I find it interesting how we interrupt ancient landscapes in the modern day, how we build around them and ‘fix’ things for people to look at and visit. It could be argued that the landmark should be left in its natural form, not remade for the interest of people whom dont consider the history of the building.
