A picturesque ruin by the sea

Once a glorious medieval church, St Andrew's now lies in picturesque ruin by the sea, with only the lofty fourteenth-century tower (preserved as a sea mark) and a curtain of original walling surviving. A smaller thatched-roof church, built in 1672 when the inhabitants were given permission to dismantle the older church and still in use, nestles inside the ruins. One hopes that the rapidly encroaching sea will leave this lovely place to be enjoyed for a few more decades.
