Langport, All Saints Church
Langport, All Saints Church
A Grade-I listed building in Perpendicular Gothic style, All Saints is primarily a result of 15th century remodelling of an earlier Norman church. Only the tympanum above the south door survives of that Norman church.
The most impressive feature of the church is the striking west tower, which rises in three stages to a pinnacled top. An external corner stair rises up the south east corner of the tower to a turret. The exterior of the tower is decorated with fascinating carved figures known locally as 'hunky-punks'.

The east window of the chancel retains very fine late medieval stained glass depicting a variety of saints (from the church's deication 'All Saints'). This is accounted one of the best medieval windows in Somerset. The church is no longer in regular use for worship, and is preserved by the Churches Conservation Trust

The church stands on a hill, and on a clear day you can see south to Muchelney Abbey.
