St Mary's Church, Stocklinch Ottersey, Somerset
| Access information
A legend of love for a hilltop jewel
This beautiful hillside landmark made of golden Ham stone is an atmospheric gem. It stands close to an old water source, one of Somerset's many holy - or healing - wells.
St Mary's is tied to its sister church in the village, St Mary Magdalene, with an old legend of two sisters who both fell in love with a vicar, each building a church for him.
Highlights of the interior include a Norman font and wonderful tombs and monuments.
St Mary's is accessed via a public footpath from Owl Street. There is limited parking but space for one or two cars on the side of the road.
We are actively looking for volunteers to help with fundraising for this church - if you can help, get in touch.
