North Cheriton is a tiny village in South Somerset with a beautiful church at its heart surrounded by a sprinkling of snowdrops.

Church of St John the Baptist

Like so many villages without a pub or shop the church, and the village hall, are the hub of the community.

However, the little flowers are also found around the village.  Leading away from the church is a grassy lane lined with snowdrops.
