A tiny place on the map with barely a few houses. But within its small confines are some interesting locations and if your visiting then its definitely worth calling by. The land sorrounding this village is notorious for flooding during wet winter months but never an issue during the summer.
The site of this village is old and once had a large Benedictine Abbey on the grounds. Whilst a couple of buildings still stand, much of it show just the foundations. English Heritage now maintain the site and have much more information on their web page linked below.
The parish church is adjacent to the abbey remains and is one of the best in Somerset. More information and links to it can be found here.
Across the road from the church entrance is the Priests House. This quaint thatched cottage is now owned by the National Trust. For a more information about it including the limited opening times check their web page using the link below.
Additionally there is a pottery to visit too.
