South Petherton's fine church has an octagonal central tower with twelve bells. The David Hall Arts Centre is South Somerset's premier rural performing arts venue, renowned for its folk music, theatre and film programme.
Nearby in the village of Shepton Beauchamp is the Dennis Chinaworks (appointment only) and the magical East Lambrook Manor Gardens is well worth a visit, created by Margery Fish who was known as the 'Leading Lady of Gardening' from the 1950s until her death in 1969. It holds the national collection of geraniums and an incredible collection of snowdrops, hosting a wonderful festival every February.
