Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:

The ruined St Mary Church in East Somerton was built in the 15th century & survived the Reformation but fell into disuse when the parish was swallowed by neighbouring Winterton. However, some say that a witch with a wooden leg was buried alive in St Mary's & a large oak tree grew fromher leg & destroyed the church. Today the tree can be found growing in themiddle of the original nave.
