Why I Adore English Parish Churches

These are views of St. Andrew's Church in Minterne Magna.
Aside from the charming name,
I stopped because it was right on the road
as I was heading down a rural route to Dorchester
(to see an iron age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.)
I took a quick tour around.
It contains the tombs of Winston Churchill's ancestors.
See, this is why I like English parish churches so much.
Each of them has a story,
a connection,
something interesting about it.
And many have lovely examples of art as well.
