Parish Church of St Mary, Puttenham
Parish Church of St Mary, Puttenham
This little gem of a parish church lies tucked away down a lane from the tiny village of Puttenham. An SP8814 : Informative notice ... and geographer gives much information about the church.
It is a Grade I listed building LinkExternal link - In the Victoria County Histories LinkExternal link
the church is referred to as being dedicated to "Our Lady", but this is of course a synonym for St Mary.
Thankful Villages

There are, it is thought, 52 so-called Thankful Villages (also sometimes called "Blessed Villages") in England and Wales. These villages get this epithet from the fact that they were fortunate enough to see the safe return home of all their men and women who went to war in the Great War of 1914-18
Somerset is clearly the most blessed county in this context, having nine such villages.
For more information about these villages including an interesting annotated list, see LinkExternal link
