Completed 11th century

The Church of St Mary at Hardington in the parish of Hemington, Somerset, England, dates from the 11th century and has been designated as a Grade I listed building.[1]

The church has an un-aisled nave and small west tower which dates from the late 14th century.[2] In the 19th century the earlier chancel was largely rebuilt. The parish of Hardington was formed in the Middle Ages and merged into Hemington in 1733.[3]

It is no longer used as a church and has been in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust since 1972.

The interior of the church includes fragments of medieval wall paintings and a board painted with the arms of Charles I.[4][5]
