This is a Dorset hidden gem. The wooden roof is unique and dates from 1485. The tombs of the Turbervilles are here (sound familiar?)

One of Dorset's best kept secrets. The interior roof is stunning. A medieval masterpiece of the woodcarvers art. Twelve life size apostles given by Cardinal John Morton, Chancellor to Henry 7th and Archbishop of Canterbury in the fifteenth century. Also made famous in fiction in Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Not to be missed if visiting Dorset.

One of the lesser known beauties of Dorset this church dates back to Norman times and even has traces of Saxon stonework. The church is known mainly for its unique wooden roof in the nave with the fantastic carvings and the carved pew ends and more stone carvings round some of the pillars. There are connections with King John and Henry VII and a literary connection with Thomas Hardy as here are to be found the tombs of the Turnberville family - or as they were named in his novel "d'Urberville".

There is a small carpark nearby and also the post office and a couple of pubs for those who need some refreshment.

I will not attempt to better the two previous reviews as I would say they sum up this lovely church,already. I am very priviledged to have lived in this fantastic village for more than 10 years so some may feel that I have a vested interest. I would like to state clearly that I have no financial interest,whatsoever, in any of the businesses I am about to mention.
In addition to our convenience store and our Post Office we have 2 excellent pub/restaurant/coffee-stops located literally within a 2 minute walk. The village is a brilliant central location for those wishing to explore the wider delights and attractions of Dorset and we boast several excellent B&B's close at hand and also a very nice campsite close by. SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND.

Its a historic church going back over a thousand years. Notable for its connection to the works of Thomas Hardy, its full of history and interest. If you can take one of the guided tours as stated on the website its well worth it and your donation helps keep the church going.
