Church History

Across the benefice we have a rich history in our churches.  Brief historical information is on the first page of each church's individual page.  If you wish to find out more, please visit our churches and have a look around.  Further details on local history can be found in the Somerset Heritage Centre.  Visit their website to see the opeining hours.



Family history

You may like to visit some or our churchyards and look at the names on the gravestones, it can be enlightening, and inside the churches there are often plaques of interest regarding local families.  Specific baptism and birth records can be found online - search here
