On a wet cloudy day I looked back at some of my favourite Somerset churches in autumn.
This little church is a hidden treasure down one of the many narrow lines in south Somerset.
Church of St Lawrence, Cucklington
The church has impressive views across Somerset. A nearby bench on the road overlooking the village is a great spot for cyclists to take a break.
St Nicholas Church, Bratton Seymour
Another church hidden down a lane from the main road. Situated on the edge of a steep hill side it is beautifully illuminated each autumn equinox.
Church of St Cuthbert, Wells
In spring the church yard is full of daffodils. This is the largest parish church in Somerset and played a starring role in the file Hot Fuzz.
St Mary the Virgin, Compton Pauncefoot
During the harvest period I often choose to cycle through Compton Pauncefoot. The newly gathered bales in the fields create their own mist.
St Lawrence Church, Rodney Stoke
This church is hidden away in this small village between Wells and Cheddar. Surrounded by hills, woods, fields and narrow lanes it a great place to start a walk.
Church of St John the Baptist, Buckhorn Weston
Guest church for this Somerset blog as its in north Dorset. I regularly cycle passed the church on my way home. At the bottom of a very steep hill its a great excuse to stop for a few minutes rest.
Church of St Lawrence, Priddy
When we researched our family history it lead us back to the small village of Priddy high up in the Mendip Hills.
St James, Milton Clevedon
The church in the farmyard is about as rural as you can get. On a couple of occasions I have had to wait in the farmyard as a herd of cows strolls back to the farm for milking.
Church of the Holy Cross, Babcary
I often visit Babcary for its wonderful flower meadows. When I do I park on the other side of the village next to this church.
The church at the top of the hill in Uphill.
