St Andrew, Northover

Just north of Ilchester over the River Yeo, St Andrew’s is a simple 15th century building, with earlier fragments in the tower, and restored in 1878 by Charles Benson. But its site close to a large Roman cemetery beside the Fosse Way, is of outstanding archaeological importance. An excavation of the mound on which it stands could well reveal the foundations of a Saxon minster noted in Domesday and perhaps signs of an earlier pagan temple.
