In the shadow of the great Abbey of Downside

A mile from its village down a farm track through fields, the Old St Andrew's Church is set beautifully against a backdrop of tall trees, with the great Abbey of Downside towering beyond.

St Andrew's is simple and unassuming outside, but the south porch is of great antiquarian interest.

Inside, the church has a treasure trove of Georgian furnishings including box pews, pulpit, desk, west gallery and hat pegs. Everything here is delightfully unrestored and atmospheric.
