Find the medieval market cross monument near the pretty, Grade I-listed St Andrew’s Church. Head in and spot the faceless clock, one of the oldest working clocks in Britain, and check out the monument of Norman knight Sir Walter de Dunstanville, Baron of Castle Combe, who died in 1270. A tip for history buffs: his crossed legs signal that he went on two medieval crusades. Absolute hard nut. Next, get a snap of Doctor Dolittle’s house from the original 1967 movie. The film’s producers at the time ignored warnings of the county’s rainy summers which persistently interfered with shooting – let’s hope the weather is better for you today. Drop by the village hall, too, to check if the sporadic market is on. If it is, you’re in for a treat – you’ll find locally made pies, cakes, jams, quilts, jewellery and more. Go home with a glut of glorious bits and bobs.
