High on a hill with far-reaching views

Standing high above the Medieval Court to the west of the village, the church overlooks the distant industrial sprawl of Portishead. The 12th-century tympanum is the oldest visible part, with good carved stonework throughout.

Highlights are:

  • a thirteenth-century screen;
  • reredos and benches; and
  • a grand late 1692 monument showing the kneeling figures of Edmund Wynter and his wife.
