St Thomas à Becket Church on the River Chew

Pensford, Somerset, Great Britain. Todd Atteberry, artist

The village of Pensford is in Somerset, Great Britain. We stumbled upon it in search of the Stanton Drew stone circles, and were mesmerized by this view. A great flood of the River Chew in 1968 damaged the railroad viaduct in the background so extensively it never reopened. Also damaged was the St Thomas à Becket Church in the foreground, which was already in use in 1341.
