St Mary, Cossington, Somerset

The walls of the nave and tower but not the chancel are scraped. There is some good Victorian stained glass in the nave north windows, and the tracery of the east window has four small figures who could be medieval (I am no expert and Pevsner does not mention them). Cusped and empty tomb recess in the chancel. The chief interest would be the C16 brasses on the chancel floor, now hidden under the plush blue fitted carpet. There are however replicas on display in the nave, and close by is an unusually slender C15 font, not mentioned by Pevsner - a surprise seeing how often he mentions medieval fonts as "of a usual type" (as he does at Woolavington!)
