All Saints

The gleaming lime washed walls of this imposing church overlooking Exmoor give a foretaste of the wonderfully light and spacious feeling interior, with its slender white pillars and soaring wagon roofs.

About this church

The south aisle, from 1538, is a masterpiece with splendid Perpendicular window tracery in the local style.

The upper floor of the unusual two storey porch incorporates an interior balcony from where the lords of the manor could watch the proceedings, theatre style: this was an early 19th century conversion by the Acland family of nearby Holnicote.

Two family members are commemorated by plaques at the west end.

St Beuno

With its unusual dedication, to a 6th century saint from north Wales, this is usually considered to be the smallest church in England, set in a secluded wooded combe.

St Petrock

A small rural mediaeval church on Exmoor with a lot going on!

St George

An uneasy truce between priory and parish characterised the early history of this church: the townsfolk used the west end, while the monks worshipped at a separate high altar at the east end.
