Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells Norton Fitzwarren

About Us

We are situated in the north-west corner of Taunton and just beyond the edge of the town. We are part of the Benefice of St. John's Staplegrove, with All Saints', Fitzwarren. Our Churches enjoy very good links with Staplegrove Church School and Norton Fitzwarren Church School.

The Church of All Saints dates from the late 13th and early 14th century, it is the centre of the village of Norton Fitzwarren. The Church has a late 13th century tower made of squared and coursed sandstone with ham stone dressings.

Inside the Church there is a very handsome 3:5 bay rood screen with double doors. It is long, relatively low, fan vaulted and canopied, adorned with long projecting cornices to hold the loft. In the nave there are several fine, richly carved bench ends. The stained glass windows depict the Saints such as St Anne, St Anna, St George and St Wilfrid.

The south-west corner of the churchyard is said to have been a burying ground for gypsies

All Saints' Church has formed strong links with the Royal Marines at Norton Manor Camp holding Candlelight services before, during and after operational deployments and as a solace to families and the local community of Norton Fitzwarren.
