Church of St Martin of Tours, Church Street, West Coker - South Somerset

C13 or C14 origins, mostly rebuilt in 1863-1864. The church itself is well used, however recent failure of the nave roof and water ingress through the chancel roof are causing significant damage. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was offered in 2016. Project development work has been completed and works commenced in early 2018.
