St. Simon and St. Jude Winterborne Monkton  

This charming little building rests on raised ground slightly apart from the hamlet it serves below the ramparts of Maiden Castle.

The church is essentially 13c, but the windows and tower are 16c and the northern doorway is Norman.

The celebrated Dorset poet, William Barnes', son was rector here 1866–1908.  His father occupied the next door parish.

The church is locked.
