St Nicholas Church, Durweston
St Nicholas Church, Durweston
This 500 year old church has a curious sculpture over the door showing one man holding a three legged horse and another man showing a horseless leg. He is thought to be St. Eloy the patron saint of blacksmiths, who in church windows is frequently depicted as a farrier because, according to legend, he once removed a horse's leg to shoe it and afterwards replaced it.
