The Anglican Church of the Holy Cross in Weston Bampfylde, Sparkford, Somerset, England was built in the 13th century. It is a Grade II* listed building.[1]

History[edit]

The church was built in the 13th century and refurbished in the 15th. A Victorian restoration was carried out in the 19th century.[1]

Following an inspection in 2010 repair work was carried out on the stonework of the tower.[2]

The parish is part of the Cam Vale benefice within the Diocese of Bath and Wells.[3][4] It became part of the Sparkford Parish in 1933.[5]

Architecture[edit]

The stone building has hamstone dressings and slate roofs. It consists of a two-bay chancel and three-bay nave with a vestry and south porch. The four-stage west tower is octagonal in its upper stages.[1]

Inside the church are a 17th century timber pulpit and 12th century stone font.[1]
