A former Catholic Chapel stands on South Street at SX 8028 6037. Now converted to residential use, and listed as a former chapel on at least two estate agency websites, the 25" O.S. map of 1904-6 labels it as a R. C. Church. The history page of the website for St. Mary and St. George says that 1902 saw the opening of a church on South Street. Totnes Image Bank has more photos here (including interiors), and advises that the 1902 church was also dedicated to St. Mary and St. George, and had previously been school.
