Beaminster & Pilsdon: St Mary of the Annunciation, Beaminster
Stunning Dorset church
(Photos © urban75, April 2010)
Beaminster's had a church since Saxon times, although the current building stands on an earlier Norman structure.
The tower dates from around 1500 and has been described as 'one of the glories of the West Country' and features 41 stone 'crocketted' pinnacles, showing devils and mythical animals.
It's a lovely looking church - here's a selection of photos:
The church stands on a little hill near the centre of the town.
Near the school is this converted old church.
The gravestones had been unceremoniously bundled together in the old graveyard.
Small Catholic Church on the edge of town.
