West Ogwell Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The church is composed of a nave, chancel, north and south transepts, south porch, and the west tower which we've already mentioned. The interior is a surprise; with Georgian decoration throughout. Georgian features include a set of elegant communion rails, box pews, and tiered benches.
There are some older features remaining, however, including a Jacobean pulpit, 13th-century triple sedilia in the sanctuary, and a medieval timber-framed roof.
West Ogwell church is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and is generally open daily.
