St Cuthbert

Interesting
Overshadowed by its prestigious neighbour, this magnificent Perpendicular Gothic parish church stands at the other end of the city. The elegant, 37 m tower has buttresses which support the bell tower. The inside features a typical Somerset 16C coffered ceiling, restored in 1963, a superb Jacobean pulpit dating from 1636 and two much mutilated altarpieces, commissioned in 1470.
