Long Description:
Gargoyles on the bell tower of St Michael's church, Compton Chamberlayne.

"[The] church of St Michael stands close to Compton House. The church was built at the end of the 13th century in the Early English style, at the same time as Salisbury Cathedral was being constructed some 7 miles away. Further work was carried out in the 14th and 15th centuries, with restoration in 1877 by James Soppitt of Shaftesbury. The church contains the Penruddocke family vault and has a peal of six bells, two dating from the 17th century and four from the 19th century.

The church is a Grade II* listed building."
