The church looks brilliant when viewed from all angles. It is worth going inside and walking around to take in the history. Excellent photo from the medieval square abutting the church. If you visit the town definitely go up to the church.

A most beautiful and welcoming church set in a beautiful corner of Axbridge complete with very old wells at the foot of the steps.

Had to have a quick look in here- its a lovely church and appears to have had an interesting history. I think I found their green man on the ceiling!!! The Old wells next to the church were an interesting find as well :)
