St Michael and All Angels Church, Marwood

Marwood is a village in North Devon 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north of Barnstaple.[1] The village contains 20 acres (81,000 m2) of ornamental gardens open to the public, known as Marwood Hill Gardens. The gardens were developed by Dr Jimmy Smart, who died in 2002. There is a tea-room.

An electoral ward with the same name exists whose population at the 2011 census was 1,879.[2]

On an island in the middle lake at Marwood Hill Gardens[3] is a sculpture of a mother and children by John Robinson, who also sculpted the font-cover in the 13th-century church at Marwood. A bronze sculpture of two swans arising from the lower lake was created by Jonathan Cox.
