Visit to Stogumber
May 12, 2018 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm
Meet at 2pm in the churchyard opposite the White Horse Inn or inside the church if wet.
Duration of visit: about 2 hours
The main building of interest in Stogumber is St Mary’s, a large Norman church which still has mediaeval carvings on the outside and was sympathetically restored internally in the 1870’s. The early C17th almshouses and the High St are also of interest.
From the churchyard, we will make a fairly short, but quite hilly, circular walk to view evidence of earlier settlements. Records show that Stogumber was an established community by Anglo Saxon times with weaving, brewing and agricultural industries and was on a well-used route to the ancient port of Watchet.
The walk is hilly but is along a paved path and will last about an hour. There will be plenty of stops but no seats and is suitable for anyone who does not have a mobility or a specific health issue. Suitable footwear should be worn, bearing in mind that the paths might be slippery if it’s wet.
Please let me know if you would like to join the visit so that you can be contacted should the arrangements change for any reason.
If anyone would like to have a meal in the White Horse Inn before the walk then please let Elizabeth Friend know by April 11th so that a table can be reserved if necessary.
