Cemetery notes and/or description:
The church has Saxon origins, retains a 13th-century crosswing, with the remainder of the buildings dating from the 15th century, with major restorations in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The tower is an irregular octagon on plan, wider on its east-west axis, which is believed to be the tallest octagonal church tower in the United Kingdom.

It is home to several fine brass effigies, including those of Sir Giles Daubeney (d. 1445/46), and his first wife, Joan. In the South Chapel is a Ham stone effigy of an earlier member of the Daubeney family dating from no later than 1300. The effigy is of a man clad in mail and was found at Pitway, South Petherton on 7 March 1929. There is some stained glass but much of it was destroyed during the English Civil War.
