The attractive and well-stocked children's area in the Church of St Andrew in the town of Wiveliscombe in Somerset.

The Church of St Andrew in Wiveliscombe dates back to 1829 when it was built on the site of the previous church , which had been demolished as it was reportedly unsafe. The architect for this large 19th century church, Richard, Carver, was also responsible for the building of the town hall. Things of special interest include the Norman font; family box pews;  and two early alabaster figures from the original church. A splendid, welcoming, and active church, which should be on any list of places to visit.
