Author, teacher of art history and architecture and lecturer to university audiences, The Georgian Group and the Victorian Society.

Start at 2.00 pm at St Peter, Skinners Hill, Camerton BA2 0PU. Car park off approach road to church. Described by Arthur Mee (in The King’s England, Somerset) as ‘a truly noble village church, spacious and light’. Many of the fitments date from the church’s enlargement in 1891– 2.

On to St Luke and St Andrew, 8 Summerlea, Priston BA2 9EF. A small village church, but with ‘a noble dignity’. Norman origins with Norman tower arches, door and sculptures including a rare crouching lion, cats with sharp ears and creatures with goggle eyes.

Thence to St Julian, High Street, Wellow BA2 8QE, one of the most impressive village churches in the county, said to date from 1372, sympathetically restored and enlarged in 1889–90.  Many old bench ends with poppyheads. Late C13th font with an eight-lobed bowl. 

Tea here – donations please.
