The leaning tower of the Levels

A wonderful Medieval church with a noticeably leaning tower on the low-lying north Somerset Levels.

It stands on a small mound at the edge of an earthwork which has produced evidence of a tenth to thirteenth century settlement.

Dominated by its leaning tower, the church is externally Perpendicular in style, with an earlier Saxo-Norman nave to the south.

Its light, rustic interior features ledger stones - engraved stones covering old tombs - set in the flagged floor.

Fine oak box pews on the north side of the nave are probably early eighteenth century, and the oak reading desk and pulpit are Jacobean.
