Puxton, Holy Saviour Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The church stands on low ground in the Somerset Levels, on a small mound beside an earthwork. The earthwork is thought to be the site of a late Saxon and early Norman settlement. If you look up at the tower you will see that it has a distinct lean to one side.
The porch is dated to 1557. The nave is late Saxon and Norman, with much of the remainder in Perpendicular style. The font is Norman, with a 17th-century cover.
Over the south door is a royal coat of arms to George II. The interior furnishings include a carved Jacobean pulpit and reading desk.
The church is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and is no longer used for regular worship.
