I`m delighted to report that I am now taking bookings for my April 2022 weekend based in Somerset that was originally planned for April 2020. This three night coach tour will be based in Ilminster at a comfortable hotel that we have used before and will visit approximately twenty churches. The cost is £595 per person which includes Dinner, Bed and Breakfast and transport from 2pm at Crewkerne Station on the first day until 2pm at Crewkerne Station on the last day. The only extras will be lunches and donations to the churches. If you travel to Somerset by car you can be picked up and dropped back at the Hotel. Please note that single rooms are limited in number.
The situation regarding open churches is still mixed with the C of E giving individual churches discretion as to how to use their buildings. However, I am working on the premise that most of the churches I originally planned to visit will be available, although I may have to swap a few around nearer the time.
Here is my proposed Programme:
Whitelackington, Shepton Beauchamp, South Petherton, Martock,Hinton St George, Crewkerne, Chillington,Cudworth, Curry Rivel, Muchelney, Kingsbury Episcopi, Long Sutton, Langport, Isle Abbots, North Curry, Hatch Beauchamp, Ashill, Chilthorne Domer, Montacute, Brympton.
The Autumn tour, visiting churches in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire will run from 10th-13th October 2022 and will be advertised later this year.
