COMPTON DUNDON - Compton Dundon is made up of several settlements of which the main ones are Compton, Dundon, and Littleton. Compton lies on the B3151 between Street and Somerton. Dundon is 1km west of the main road with St Andrews Church on a loop that runs around Dundon Beacon. Church Farm is situated in the Dundon part of the village between the two hills of Lollover and the Beacon. Dundon was recorded as existing in the 10th century and there was probably a church on the site then. The great yew tree in the churchyard, reputed to be over 1700 years old, was certainly here.
