Village Visits

The Teffonts - Magna and Evias

16th April 2009

Just 5 of us led by Frank Woodward explored the Teffonts. Very enjoyable it was too. First we entered St Edwards church in Teffont Magna. We were saddened to note that the medieval Bell was missing.  Why?

Then we strolled down the road to Fitz House.  We were fortunate to meet and chat to the owner.  She said that the village was now spoiled by infill developments.

Then we drove up the stream [River Teff] to its source.  This is opposite Farmer Giles entrance.

On to Evias church.  There is a lot of great interest within and without. See the photos of the stained glass windows originally from Holland.

We finished the morning at the Barford Inn.
