St Andrew, Cheddar, Somerset on Flickr.Via Flickr:
St Andrew’s Church, Cheddar, lies on the opposite side of the small town centre to the Gorge and the Show Caves with all its touristy entrapments. It is a large church to, with a splendid west tower, notably tall and slim. The church appears to be a Perp rebuilding until you notice the Decorated clerestory windows and find inside C14 arcades (which are rather plain for Somerset). This should be a church that impressed (and it did impress me on my earlier visit) but apart from the tower and its lovely lierne vault inside, there is not that much memorable here and I found it disappointing ultimately and the feel was of a Victorian over-restoration. . However a bonus was that being February I had the church to myself throughout the visit, something which is quite rare in the summer.
