Slapton, St Botolph

Slapton, St Botolph

St Botolph

The church stands at the highest point of the village and dates from the 12th / 13th century. It was largely built under the auspices of the Lucy family whose crest of three pike can be seen in the Medieval stained glass of the East window. The interior is famous for it’s late Medieval wall paintings. The largest is a towering St Christopher with the Christ child on his shoulder on the north wall. The most unusual is that of St Elio in the south chapel. The saint is shown shoeing a intransigent horse by removing his leg, leaving the horse supported by scaffolding.

The interior is a delightful medley of different elements; Medieval architecture and paintings, Jacobean panelling topped by 'pepperpots', a rare 18th century tripod lectern, and stain glass windows that belong to William White's restoration of the 1870/80s.
