13th century

Windows, Wall and buttresses at the church of St Mary in Bridgwater, Somerset,

It was built in the 13th century, and has been designated as a Grade I listed building. It is dedicated to Saint Mary, the Virgin. The first vicar was recorded c1170, (Wikipedia.)

In July 1685, during the Monmouth Rebellion, the Duke of Monmouth watched from the tower as the forces of King James II assembled, at Westonzoyland, under the command of the Earl of Feversham prior to the Battle of Sedgemoor, Which was the last battle fought on English soil.

Possibly worth a larger view.

Good capture of the excellent brick / slate work (not sure what the stone is but I like it!)

Roger (Grisly) replied to Andy Rodker:

Many thanks Andy, I'm fairly sure the walls are blue lias limestone and the windows in some form of sandstone, the little bit of the tower visable top left is Wembdon red sandstone quarried locally.
