St. Peter & St. Paul, Cattistock
Listed in Simon Jenkins' "England's Thousand Best Churches"
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

 

St. James, East Chelborough
"St. James' is one of those Dorset churches which is awkward to find, but well worth the effort. This one is buried away at the end of a very long drive and adjacent to a private house."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Andrew, West Chelborough
"This is a delightful little church in an equally charming village."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

Holy Trinity, Chilfrome
"Chilfrome is a delightful little hamlet set amidst water meadows. There is no intrusion by modern buildings, almost as if all development ceased in 19c."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Mary, Corscombe
"There has been a church in this delightful setting since, at least 1315...."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Osmund, Evershot
"Evershot is one of those intriguing settlements that seem too large to be a village yet really too small to be called a town.......At the higher end of the road, overlooking the houses, the church has been placed for all to see."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

St. Mary, Frome St. Quintin
"This must be almost unique in Dorset because the church is in the corner of a field with no road access to it."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

St. Francis, Frome Vauchurch
"The church is placed end-on to the road so that the little bell turret is the first thing that greets one. It is surrounded by a surprisingly large churchyard containing an impressive sundial."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

St. Mary, Halstock
"This is a very interesting country church built from local rubble..... The nave is to the design of the celebrated Victorian architect, Augustus Pugin..... ."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

St.Juthware Festival goings-on...

 

 

 

St. Mary, Maiden Newton
"Maiden Newton is hardly a town yet is almost too large to be called a village and its splendid medieval church reflects this slightly superior status."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

St. Mary the Virgin, Melbury Bubb
"The little church lies at the base of Bubb Down next to a splendid 17c manor house and a scattering of other dwellings in this remote, but very beautiful, part of Dorset."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Osmund, Melbury Osmond with Melbury Sampford
"This is a very interesting church in a delightful village....... There seems to have been a church here since Domesday."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Michael and All Angels, Rampisham
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Basil, Toller Fratrum
"This is a tiny chapel style building standing in its own graveyard beside a lovely 16c farm house."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.

 

 

 

 

St. Mary, Wraxall
"This captivating little building must certainly be one of the smaller churches in Dorset."
Click here for Dorset Historic Churches page.
