John Hayward 1808-1891 practised in Exeter. He designed the 'complete' chur=
ches at Bicton and Exwick; also, Tuckingmill (Cornwall). Exwick, a suburb o=
f Exeter, has a small church and generally regarded as Hayward's best. Bict=
on gets a good press too. Doubtless, he was responsible for several restora=
tions and partial rebuilds.

Whilst this is getting off the topic, I thought that I would answer the que=

J. Hayward, whoever he was - C15 tower retained. The church is really rat=
her unexceptional: that is clear from photos and description.


Seems to have been a local Devon architect, with a fair number of churche=
s to his credit (though I would not presume to make any architectural judge=
ment whatsoever). According to the ICBS Monkton is only ?Hayward. See http=
