A lovely church which is obviously not just a historic building but also a much loved present day place of worship. Pretty altar frontal and lectern drapes reflecting the sea. Awesome crypt-like chapel.

This church also seems like a tardis to me, quite big on the outside but huge for a village church on the inside. Always well maintained, it is a very calming experience, very bright & airy for a church over a thousand years old.

I love visiting churches and this was a nice example. It had a crypt downstairs which was interesting, some good local knowledge to be read inside and some interesting vistas to take pictures of.

This is undoubtedly a historic church. How could it be otherwise bearing in mind its connection to Harold Godwinson? I understand that the Cnut connection is less proven. The exterior is impressive, the interior less so since it has been extensively enlarged and renovated over...More
