CATTISTOCK

St Peter and St Paul

 

The village of Cattistock is an ancient place with a history reputedly reaching back to before the reign of the King Athelstan (924-39), who was the first recorded king of England and who gave the settlement to Milton Abbey.  Now it is a peaceful and quintessentially English village, which still supports a shop, a pub, a very famous pack of foxhounds and some delightfully rural architecture clustered around the triangular centre.  However,  dominating this and the scene for miles around stands George Gilbert Scott jnr's supremely elegant church tower.
