A landmark for travellers

In Medieval times, this church was a landmark for travellers crossing the lonely and potentially treacherous wilds of Sedgemoor.

Rebuilt in 1827 in a Georgian style by Richard Carver of Taunton, its interior is beautifully preserved and furnished with a lovely pulpit and box pews.

An original Medieval window that was re-used can be seen in the small apse.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

There are six steps up to the churchyard.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
