Long Description:
The gargoyles range from scaly beasts with folded wings which cling to the tower, to bulgy eyed faces holding their mouths open.

St Martin's church was built on a site given by the Duke of Somerset then consecrated in October 1846. Wikipedia describes the church: visit link

'The Church of England parish church of Saint Martin was built in 1842-44 to decorated gothic designs by the Gothic Revival architect George Gilbert Scott. It was consecrated on 14 October 1846 as a chapel of ease of the parish of Mere. On 27 June 1848 Zeals was made a separate ecclesiastical parish and St Martin's became the parish church.'
