The Church of All Saints in Trull, Somerset, England has a tower dating from the 13th century; the rest is 15th-century. The building has been designated as a Grade I listed building.[1]

The church was served by the monks of Taunton Priory until 1308.[2]

The east window, dating from the 15th century, depicts the crucifixion with St John and the Mother of Jesus at the foot of the Cross.[3] The pulpit is believed to date from the 16th century, moving to its current position from the north arcade as part of a Victorian restoration around 1863.[4]

The lower portion of the tower is the oldest part of the building, with the north aisle being built in the 14th century and the south aisle in the 15th.[5] The tower holds six bells, two of which were cast before Protestant Reformation.[4]

The parish is part of the benefice of Trull with Angersleigh within the Taunton deanery.[6]
