This is a great church in a lovely setting. We had a blessing here 20 years ago and it was good to see that not a lot has changed. It's still as beautiful as ever. You must visit when in the village.

We attended this beautiful church of St Andrews for a wedding practice and then a wedding - simply sublime and great acoustic! Your quintessential English church - perfect for a wedding. Organist and choir superb.

A smallish but unique church given it's age and location in a wonderful setting behind the main road on a large village green.

A pretty church with lovely stained glass. Not too far from a walk along the river or visit the Clergy house next door. Nice little coffee bar right in the vicinity.

This church is so well looked after and such a beautiful location on a hill. Some lovely old historical graves and such a peaceful feel just sitting on the benches. One of the most beautiful churches we visited on our whole trip.

This very old church is called the Cathedral of the South Downs. It is set on a rise off the village green. It is being restored and has striking stained glass windows. It is well worth attending a service as then you can see the...More
