About this spot
A beautiful Norman grade 1 listed chapel standing 108 metres above sea level. First identified as a chapel through records of payments to a chaplain in the reign of King Henry (1261-1272). The cross was erected later (1873). An interesting architectural fact is the corners of the chapel are orientated towards the cardinal points. The chapel is dedicated to St Aldhelm who was the 8th bishop of Sherborne in nearby Dorset.
