This hamlet is gloriously picturesque and many of its buildings are made from local hamstone. This type of stone is unique to nearby Ham Hill and has a yellow hue; it lends the buildings a particularly pretty aesthetic. Norton-sub-Hamdon is home to a manor house of 17th-century origins and a water mill dating back from around the same time. In the grounds of the Church of St Mary the Virgin, there’s a 17th-century stone dovecote. Although you can’t go inside, it contains 400 stone nests and is said to have provided pigeons for the manor. There’s an old pub here if you’re looking for somewhere to put your feet up, otherwise, simply walking around the hamlet is like stepping back in time.
