A tiny rural gem

The church of St Peter lies deep in the country in the hills above the river Mole.

A creaking medieval door opens into a charming interior, with a panelled oak roof, carved pulpit, reading desk and beautiful painted texts. Above the pews, the 24 hat pegs are a reminder of the congregation's size - the church holds no more than 40.

On a sunny day, pretty windows scatter light on the rough, limewashed walls. There is a fifteenth-century font and pretty Victorian tiles.
