Saint Brannoc Ascetic

Reposed 6 century Remembered January 7

St Brannoc came from Wales. He made his cell at Braunton (Brannockstood) on the Taw/Torridge estuary near Barnstaple and may have built the very first church in Devon. He may be buried under the high altar. His holy well is a very pleasant round pool.
