St Mary, Moorlinch, Somerset

Another church trying to hide, but does not do it as well as Cossington as it is on a hill. Quite a long walk to the porch from the road. West tower, nave, porch and chancel. The tower is unbuttressed and C13 below, the chancel is largely C14 and the rest a medley of styles all tidied up in the C19. Yet the outer doorway of the porch seems to be late Norman, probably reused here. The porch itself shelters a C14 door with blank tracery. From the outside came strains of an organ playing and I hoped it was not a service.
