When you are in the tiny village of Moorlinch the church is hard to find. It seems to be hidden in an orchard.

But high above the village from the top of Knoll Hill it stands out.

To the south it overlooks the flat fields of the Somerset Levels.  A few years ago that entire area was covered in flood water.  Then the church overlooked a small in land sea.

And finally…

It’s not all flat around Moorlinch.  The road up through the village is very steep – having cycled up it several times I know that.  Knoll Hill has views across traditional English countryside.
