Holy Trinity Church

A view of Holy Trinity Church from the south east

Long Sutton church dates from 1493. An earlier church would have stood on this site from the 9th century or earlier. The current church was built of local Lias stone cut and squared, with Hamstone dressings.

It has stone slate roofs between stepped coped gabled with finials to the chancel and north porch.

Internally, the chancel has a ceiled wagon-roof, with moulded ribs and plaster panels. The tower exhibits the tracery typical of Somerset towers. The under-tower space has a lierne vault, and a 15th-century octagonal font with quatrefoil panels.

The building has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. The tower has a ring of six bells, the tenor weighing 136 stone (864 kg). The coloured timber pulpit, with a fly approach stair, dates from 1455–58 and is older than the church itself. It has 20th-century wood figures in the statue niches. It bears the initials identified as those of Abbot John Petherton of Athelney and Vicar William Singleton

Charity Coffee Mornings

On the first Saturday of every month, a coffee morning is held in the church, with cakes, coffee and a produce stand.  All proceeds to a charity - a different one each month.  A wonderful way to catch up with old friends and the current village gossip!
