Banwell St Andrew

A very fine spacious church entirely in the Perpendicular style. The nave and N aisle preserve their roofs. Noteworthy is the fine wooden rood screen of 1519-20 and stone pulpit.

Plain 15th-century bench ends. Unusual font. Interesting monuments including the memorial by William Burges to Lt. Turner who died at Tientsin 1860.

ST 398 591, off Church Lane N of A371 in centre of the village.
