St. Mary the Virgin, Bruton, Somerset

St. Mary the Virgin, Bruton

Bruton is a small town with a large and lovely church. It is open each day. The website,, states; ‘The church is available for private prayer every day of the year ..’ Inside, I found a very good leaflet entitled, ‘A Practical and Devotional Guide’. This explains the symbolism of the church building and what is inside it. There was also some prayer ideas and a sand tray to put votive candles in. There are guide books and post cards for sale, a CD by the choir and some knitted teddies. 9 people had filled in the visitors book in the last 2 weeks. I noticed some biographies of World War 1 casualties. These are being added to as their particular anniversary comes around. A very good idea which helps to bring home the sacrifice of these men. There is information on the bright kneelers here too – these are very popular and obviously produced with pride and love. The sacrament is reserved here. A lovely church to visit and I rate it as very good for this study.
