The ruins of Buittle Church dedicated to St. Colman (H Scott 1917) consist of 13th century nave and 14th century chancel. Though the detail would rather suggest an earlier date, it is possible that the addition dates from about 1381 when the church was given to Sweetheart Abbey.
The nave appears to have undergone frequent repair in later times; the west gable has a round-headed doorway and window which may have been reconstructed at a later period.
