We looked around St Nicolas Church after a visit to Abbotsbury children’s farm. Nice to be in a peaceful place and reflect on the beauty that surrounds us.

If you like churches with a civil cannon ball stuck in the wall then this is the place for you - a nice country church with a quirk.

Sat on a small hill this church has one of the best kept churchyards we have seen for some time. It is a credit to the community.

Walking around Abbotsbury we came to the Parish Church dating from the 16th Century. It turned out to be very well kept both inside and out and was a credit to the Parishioners and Clergy.
