St George's Church ~ Dunster

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Although founded as a Priory Church, as the town of Dunster grew in size and prosperity as a result of the wool trade, so pressure increased for the townsfolk to have their own church. This led to a dispute between town and priory which was resolved after arbitration at Glastonbury in 1499. The tribunal ruled that the area to the east of the transepts should become the Priory Church with the remaining area to be the Parish Church.
