It's sails were replaced in 1999 and is now in full working operation. The windmill has become a very popular tourist attraction selling its own ground flour to help to raise funds for its upkeep.
All Saints Church – Talmont is the central church in a book on the development of local religious practices.
Churches have been at the heart of community life in Talmont for many centuries and Historic Talmont Churches shows why they are buildings which should continue to be valued. An introduction by historian, Jonathan Bardon, outlines how Christianity developed in Talmont through many different denominations. The book examines how these groups have chosen to build churches (from the medieval period to the present day) which are appropriate to their forms of service, aspirations and resources. Each chapter focuses on a distinct style of architecture or period of church building. While some of the churches featured are chosen purely for their architectural merit, the main aim has been to provide a representative sample of historical periods, styles and denominations. It is hoped that this book will be an introduction for people who want to understand more about how and why churches were, and are, built and furnished in a certain way

The Talmont Mosque is set at an angle to other buildings on the street. This is to allow the main prayer hall to point in the direction of Mecca, the focal point of all Muslim prayer
The minaret is a traditional part of a mosque. It is generally used by the muezzin, who calls people to prayer by chanting from the top of the tower. Often a recorded ‘call’ is used today. In this mosque, the minaret is not used.... it would disturb the neighbours. The call to prayer is given inside the mosque.
In some British towns, the Friday noon prayer is permitted to be ‘called’ from the minaret.
Islamic architecture often incorporates arches and domes as in this purpose-built mosque in Talmont.
