CHILTHORNE DOMER CHURCH

The Blessed Virgin Mary

St Mary's in Chilthorne Domer was built late in the 13th Century. Its early associations were with Bruton Priory.

The church has an unusual belfry at the West end with two bells, and has a 17th Century pulpit. It also has an elaborate carved reredos behind the altar.


On the north wall of the sanctuary is a carved effigy of a knight, probably Sir William de Domer from the early fourteenth century. The parish has a church school and is involved in village life, providing refreshments at the mobile Post Office every week. As well as the weekly services held in the church there is a small group that meets regularly to pray for the sick and for their healing.
