Things to do in Kilton, Somerset
Leaving the A39 at the sharp bend, you enter what was the continuation of the old road to Kilton.
Kilton was an ancient settlement in Saxon times and the site of the church is likely to overlie a Celtic cell or oratory, established by missionary priests in the 6th century.
The Normans set up a manorial farm here after the Conquest and the place has remained productive agriculturally ever since.
Today's village is much smaller, but a careful walk around will reveal the old pathways and tracks that made up the medieval community.
A quiet, uplifted place with peaceful, spiritual overtones, the church today is alive as St. Nicholas' Wayfsrer's Church with friendly guidance on a daily basis. Worth a visit.
