Fleet Church font
Artist: Grimm, Samuel Hieronymus
Medium: Ink wash on paper
The tiny Church of the Holy Trinity in Fleet was all but destroyed by the Great Storm of 1824, known locally as "The Outrage". Below is an epitaph from St George's churchyard in Portland describing the awful event,
"The wind and sea its fury broke,
The wondrous works of God bespoke:
Man's dwellings levelled with the ground,
when some were killed and some were drowned."
