A church with ancient foundations

Just north of Ilchester, over the River Yeo, St Andrew's is a simple medieval church next to a farmyard. It was restored in 1878 by Charles Benson.

Its site - close to a large Roman cemetery beside the Fosse Way - is of outstanding archaeological importance. An excavation of the mound on which it stands could well reveal the foundations of a Saxon minster noted in the Domesday Book and perhaps reveal signs of an earlier pre-Christian/pagan temple.
