St Mary, Glanvilles Wootton, Dorset

I amused Marion by my rather inept attempt to turn and park the car at the end of the lane that leads to the church. It was not until we came out the porch that we noticed a car park oppoisite the church gate!
West tower, nave and chancel, with notable south chapel off the nave. Much restored and partly rebuilt. Two recesses in the south wall of the chapel below the fine windows, one with an alabaster effigy of a Civilian, his face retooled and resembling a Victorian gent rather than a medieval one. On the chapel west wall a hanging monument of 1679 to John Every of Cothay House in Somerset, mainly epitaph but with two entertaining kneeling figures on the top flanking a pediment.
