St. Nicholas, Nether Compton
"An interesting church... almost certainly originally served by Benedictine monks from Sherborne Abbey."

St. Michael, Over Compton
"The church forms part of a suite of buildings (with Compton House) in a most attractive setting."

St. Cuthbert, Oborne
"This high Victorian church complete with an apse and single bell turret occupies a rural setting apart from other buildings."

All Saints, Poyntington
"Originally, there was a Saxon church here of the traditional two cell layout and part of the nave wall, the north doorway and font still remain."

St. Nicholas, Sandford Orcas
"The church of St. Nicholas stands next to a wonderful mellow 16c Manor House. This is a very old Christian site because the first known record of a building is from 1216."

St. Andrew, Trent
"This church must rank among the most important in Dorset.  You have tantalising glimpses of the building as it is approached, but it is only when entering the churchyard that the beauty of whole suite becomes obvious"
