The altar and pulpit area of the Church of St Mary and All Saints, Broomfield, on the Quantock Hills in Somerset.

The Church of St Mary and All Saints in the small, isolated, village of Broomfield is well worth a visit. The church has many points of interest, including, ham stone columns and windows; a tower dating back to around 1440, adorned with gargoyles; a large 16th century iron-bound wooden chest; and one of the most complete sets of early carved bench ends in England. Outside one can also see the third largest Yew Tree in Somerset and what remains of a 15th century churchyard cross.
