All Saints, East Huntspill, Somerset

I don't think anyone can say that the exterior of this church by G P Manners is especially attractive. Neo Norman and dating from 1839 (Pevsner), the west front has a bellcote and decoration recalling the east wall at Tickencote. The church was locked but a quick phone call saw a lady keyholder pop down to open up. I wish I had asked her about the tower. The Listed buildings information says this is late C19, however the church website (on a blog!) says the church was built in 1846 and the tower was added to the porch in 1966. Pevsner writing in the 1950s does not mention the tower.
