A must visit while you are in Dunster, and definitely one to visit if you have an interest in buildings.

A fabulous church with well preserved medieval artefacts. A tile floor that I think rivals Cleeve Abbey, strong boxed that require the presence of five people to open and a beautiful rood screen.

A beautiful church with the longest rood screen in the country so well worth visiting. A lovely church churchyard with Passion Flowers in bloom and fruiting - so lovely to see them.
Dunster itself is quite a touristy small town but retains its charm. There is an imposing castle overlooking the main street and a Yarn Market still in place. The Deli (on the main street) is well worth a visit for goodies to take home.

Interesting old church that was part of the priory. Some fine woodwork. The main church yard and the gardens at the back are beautiful and well worth spending time in.

Came across this lovely little church whilst out walking. It has an exceptional, colourful rood screen.

There is no need for church bells to churn out a song 3 times through the night as well as on the quarter,half hour and hour!!! Holiday visitors will desert the village!!!

The interior was very good with a few - not many - stained glass windows. Strikingly large for such a small village.

There's lots to see in St Georges Church. It's handy for anyone visiting the village. The rood screen is extraordinary, and there is an explanation of how it came to be and the conflict between parish and priory.

The church was closed but was worth visiting to explore the exterior architecture and the church yard itself.
Photos enhance the experience.

On our recent visit to Dunster on the eastern edge of Exmoor, we were so charmed by the village, and its history, that we spent the whole day just enjoying its various sights. St. Georges was our day's final visit, and as the dusk was decending we entered this vast and imposing church. I won't spoil the story, but it has a most interesting history, as well as a very fine rood screen (clue: this is part of that story). We were also moved by the "silent exhibit", a series of outlines, representing lost military persons, which were part of the Armistace Day commemorations. There was ample evidence elsewhere that this is a living church with all sorts of activities in each and every corner. The altarpiece is truly magnificent with a nod to the mythical George and Dragon, but the real star is the enormous wagon roof which somehow survived the iconiclasts and Cromwell.

Nice church, nothing wrong with it but, and maybe I was already churched-out by this point, no great 'Wow!' factor for me.

Nice Norman doorway and windows reflect Early English and beyond. Widest rood screen in England is interesting but of no great antiquity.

Oddly the church is quite large but I could not see how to access much of it, you only seem able to visit about half, maybe I just missed something (I was on a tight timetable at that point|).

Don't let me put you off but it wouldn't be in my top 10 of churches I visited while in the area:sorry Dunster.
