This little hamlet, close to the river Frome, is almost a 'suburb' of the much larger village of Maiden Newton. The church is placed end-on to the road so that the little bell turret is the first thing that greets one. It is surrounded by a surprisingly large churchyard containing an impressive sundial.
The building is almost entirely Norman, with just a Victorian chancel added. The Jacobean pulpit is an important feature and especially interesting because access to it is through an aperture in the chancel arch. The interior is very intimate and really charming.
The font is 13c. Note the moving painting of the Crucifixion on the north wall of the nave.
