"CHURCHILL, a parish in the hundred of Winterstoke, in the county of Somerset, 13 miles from Bristol, 5 N. of Axbridge, and 5 from the Yatton station of the Great Western railway. It is delightfully situated in a valley, near the old turnpike road leading from Bristol to Bridgwater. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £98, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Bristol. The church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is in the perpendicular style of architecture, and contains monuments and a brass; among the former is one with some beautiful lines, said to be the composition of the celebrated Dr. Donne. The register commences in 1650. There are Independent and Wesleyan chapels, and a National school for both sexes."
