Low Ham

Link to map.

Low Ham is a hamlet between High Ham and Somerton.

It has a most unusual church known as "The Church in a Field", or also as, "The Church without Dedication".

In 1938 a Roman floor mosaic was discovered which turned out to be a supreme example of its kind. Now taking pride of place in the Museum of Somerset at Taunton, it shows pictograms telling the story of Aeneas and Dido.
