The oldest parts of St Mary’s Church, which lies on the hill above the hamlet of Burton, date from about 1290 although little remains from that period. The Register of Incumbents dates back to 1305 when the Abbot of Glastonbury presented Johannes de Montacute to the living. The Manor and Advowson of Netlington belonged, until the Dissolution, to Glastonbury Abbey. The present patron is the Bishop of Bristol.
At St Mary’s we have a variety of services, and all are welcome at every service. There are refreshments after our Sunday services, and our TGI Friday service is followed by a social. Our special services and events are listed on the village event calendar.
St Mary’s Church is part of the Bybrook Benefice, which includes the churches at Biddestone, Castle Combe, Grittleton, Littleton Drew, North Wraxall, Slaughterford, West Kington and Yatton Keynell.
