About this church
Very often in such towers the niches that originally held statues are empty, but here ten remain, and they are very fine examples of early 16th century sculpture. They include figures of the Virgin Mary, the risen Christ and saints.
Beneath the delicately traceried battlements at the top of the tower are eight hunky punks, the carved stone figures that are such a speciality of Somerset churches. Inside, the nave and chancel have barrel vaulted roofs, while the north aisle has an almost flat panelled roof.
In the 14th century chancel are an elaborate piscina, surrounded by carved panels, and a sedilia formed of three tub like stone seats. The Norman font is covered in strange carvings, one of which looks like a strange upside down sea creature, but with legs.
