The Church of St Mary occupies a beautiful situation on rising ground with views of the village to the south and an extensive panorama St Mary's Church over the Chinnock Brook valley and Coker Ridge to the north. It is bounded by the churchyard on all 4 sides. The Norman tower has a peal of 8 bells which attracts visiting teams of bell ringers. The nave was rebuilt in Victorian times and seats about 130 people. Regular services are held in conjunction with 6 other benefice churches.
