St. George

 

This is a really splendid genuine Victorian church with its associated school alongside.  The nave was built in 1810 and lengthened in 1837-38.  Ewan Christian was responsible for the rest, including the apse, but not the tower, which was completed in 1903-5 to a design by C E Ponting and at a cost of £1,656.  The wooden ceiling to the Apse is most attractive.

 

Note the most impressive organ and at the rear of the building an excellent funeral carriage by Goodfellow of Wincanton.
