Long Description:
Gargoyles around the parapet and string course of St Andrew's church, Fontmell Magna.

"There has been a church on the site since before the Domesday Book of 1086, however only the lower part of the tower of the original remains. During 1862 - 3 it was almost completely rebuilt to a design by the Wimborne architect, George Evans, who was responsible for four other Dorset churches.

The most distinguishing feature of the building is a parapet that extends around the whole and which is partly composed of portions salvaged from the earlier church. Hutchins, the celebrated 18th century Dorset historian, noted that part of it was dated 1530."
