7/190 Church of St Mary

- II*

Anglican Parish Church, 1876 by Sir T G Jackson. Blue lias and Ham stone with Doulting dressings, tile roof with a
slight bellcast, tile hung timber bellcote over chancel arch with arcading and lourvres, spirelet, weathervane. Nave,
south porch, chancel with an organ loft to north. Free Perpendicular and Decorated style in the Arts and Crafts idiom.
Two bay nave, 2 and 3-light windows, simple leaded lights; two 2-stage buttresses to west end with offsets, gable face
with planted frame; 2:1:2-light west window. Prominent 2-stage buttress between nave and chancel; 2-bay chancel with
small windows, 3-light east window with flowing tracery, again the gable face with planted frame. Plank door to nave,
small plank door to chancel, elaborate strap hinges. Plastered interior on tile floors; nave with unceiled king-post
tie-beam roof with struts and some cusping; chancel with unceiled wagon roof. Chancel arch composed of 2 tie-beam
trusses close behind each other, elevated by posts with heavy ogee-arched braces, cusping; these fulfill the double
function of supporting the bellcote. Complete set of fittings; simple stained pews and choir stalls with additional
seating forded by flapped extensions, some readers pierced in an unusual Art Noveau style much like Mackintosh; pulpit;
simple octagonal stone font; C19 organ. A second example in the parish of one of Jackson's relatively few church
designs. (Pevsner N, Buildings of England, South and West Somerset, 19581).
