'Hunky Punks' and the best stained glass in Somerset
All Saints, built mainly in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, stands on a hill near the River Parrett, overlooking the remains of a Benedictine abbey.
Its bold, pinnacled west tower, covered with gargoyles known locally as 'Hunky Punks', is a local landmark.
However, the church's special treasure is its east window, containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in Somerset. The saints are shown in gloriously coloured robes with both animated and serene expressions.
In April 2011 a group of young volunteers called the New Saints came together to start a project in partnership with us to find new ways of using the building in future.
