HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Early 18th-century memorial to Sir Edward Seymour by Michael Rysbrack
Despite the 12th century remains, the church we see today is largely the result of a rebuilding in 1385. High on the south aisle walls are 14th century stone corbels that supported the medieval roof. Each corbel head is unique; one shows a queen, one humourous corbel shows a fat man.
In the churchyard are gravestones to several Dukes of Somerset and their families (look outside the north west corner of the church for the gravestones). Near the churchyard path is an ancient yew tree, which the church guide suggests may indicate an ancient, pagan origin.
