A remote coastal church

This remote coastal church might look simple and unassuming from the outside, but it has a stunning unspoiled Georgian 'preaching box' interior. Large windows illuminate the wonderful wood furnishings with the cool, watery light of the surrounding marshland.

Outside is the grave of Reverend G. Potter. He was a prizefighter, and was said to have fought thrice and preached twice one Sunday.

The new St John the Baptist church, built in 1887, stands 100 metres away.

Our churches cost on average, £2500 per year, to keep them clean, conservation work, maintenance checks and in a safe condition for visitors to come and enjoy.
