Godmanstone: Holy Trinity
Tucked away opposite the Smith's Arms down Church Lane, this is a gem of an ancient parish church. The chancel arch is a Norman dogtooth arch, and supporting it on the south side is a Roman altar stone, with Roman writing still visible. Has there been a place of worship here that long?
Buckland Newton: The Holy Rood
People have worshipped at a church on this site since at least the 13th Century, when the earliest part of the current church was built. Countless generations have used this place for baptisms, weddings, funerals and in their daily service, worship and prayer.
Over the years, each generation has left their mark on the church, with additions in the 15th Century and major restoration works in the 19th and 20th Centuries, culminating in recent work to renovate the organ and place it on a gallery in the west end of the nave.
Minterne Magna: St Andrew
The small late medieval church of St. Andrew has an early 17th century north chapel and a tower from around 1800, heightened when the whole church was later restored. Due to its proximity to the big house, there are a number of interesting memorials. The magnificent Napier memorial is in the north aisle. The earliest known monuments of the Churchill family (including a 17thC Winston) are in the nave aisle by the chancel step. On the north wall is a monument to the younger brother of the Churchill for whom a grateful nation built Blenheim Palace. On the south wall is a memorial to Henry Digby, who commanded the HMS Africa at the Battle of Trafalgar.
