Historic Church Tour 4: Remembering the Somme in Somerset
Explore the WWI connections of our Somerset churches, in the company of the experts and volunteers who know them best.
Following collection from Taunton station, the day begins at All Saints, Langport, which commemorates two fallen brothers who lived next to the church. At the dainty St Mary, Stocklinch Ottersey we track the records of the men who fought and returned, making it a truly ‘Thankful’ village.
At golden-stoned St Thomas, Thurlbear, we trace the story and untimely death of a captain in the Household Cavalry who, to the last, remained an enigma.
