A church for walkers

This pretty church is an ideal resting point for walkers crossing the beautiful North Downs. It dates back to Norman times. The south chapel of 1697 contains a touching memorial to the Bertie family, with life-size marble figures of a husband and wife holding hands.

In the north chapel is a fantastical monument to Sir Henry Furness (who died in 1712) - tiered like a wedding cake and flanked by statues of women mourners and cherubs, it almost scrapes the chapel ceiling! The chancel has some fine Victorian murals and alabaster reredos, whilst there is also lovely Victorian stained glass throughout the building.
