North Cheriton is a little village in south Somerset. The word cheriton means a village with a church. So it is no surprise that the church has a prominent position at the top of the hill. It is a wonderful setting whatever the season.
I think that the church looks at its best on a sunny day in autumn.
The church overlooks the war memorial.
TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN PROUD MEMORY OF THE MEN OF THIS VILLAGE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1919
FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH
AND IN THE MEMORY OF THE FALLEN OF THE 2ND WORLD WAR 1939-1945
Snowdrops signal the beginning of the end of winter.
The Camelot churches, and their villages, have beautiful displays of snowdrops.
I can recommend a trip to visit the line of Camelot churches between Wincanton and Sparkford to see their snowdrops. If you can do it by bicycle then even better.
Nothing says spring more than primroses and daffodils.
The villagers do a great job of keeping the church grounds looking good.
Summer is a time of year when I dash through the village on my cycle home. I have just realised that I have never stopped to take a picture on a warm summer day. This is now on my list for next year.
I also want to photograph the cast iron village pump. I just need to find some time and go passed when it is in the sun!
Who does not love a sunrise?
