The rural southern part of Somerset is particularly rich in church architecture, from the poetic ruins of Glastonbury Abbey to the plain geometry of Lutyens's chapel at Brushford. Somerset's elaborate pinnacled church towers are discussed in detail; the examples at Evercreech, Huish Episcopi, Taunton and elsewhere are among the county's most thrilling and distinctive architectural landmarks. Church interiors range from the unexpected delight of the traceried roof at Western Zoyland to the delicate seventeenth-century ceiling at East Brent. Elizabethan architecture appears at its most successful at Montacute while Dunster Castle boasts splendid interior decoration for the later seventeenth century. The eighteenth- and nineteenth-century civic buildings of Martock, Milborne Port, Glastonbury and Chard are notable highlights on a more modest scale.
