West Ogwell is 3 miles west from Newton Abbot station on the South Devon section of the Great Western Railway, 1 mile south from the Newton and Ashburton road and 2 miles west from the Newton and Totnes road. The church (name not known) is a very small building of stone in the perpendicular style, the interior length, including the belfry, being only 52 feet, and the breadth across the transepts 32 feet; it consists of chancel, nave, transepts, south porch and an embattled western tower containing three bells, all apparently cast in 1633; there are three sedilia and an oaken pulpit; the screen, existing here at the beginning of the present century, has now disappeared; there are 80 sittings. The register dates from the year 1681.


The living is a rectory, united to that of East Ogwell. Ogwell House, now (1923) unoccupied, was originally erected by Sir Thomas Reynell in 1589: of this building, only the offices remain; the present residence dates from 1790, and is a handsome building of stone, standing in about 6 acres of gardens and meadow. John Isaac Esq. is lord of the manor and principal landowner.
