Hidden... down lane, across stream, up a bank
This medieval church is reached down a narrow lane, over a footpath across a stream and up a steep bank, making the journey to reach it part of the adventure.
Externally, the church is a patchwork of lichens on brick, stone and flint completing an idyllic rural picture.
Inside, the church is as lovely as its rural setting, furnished with handsome box pews with attractive colonnaded tops. There is a lovely stained glass east window by the Kempe Studio (1884).
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
A medieval treasure saved by George Gilbert Scott
