The Church

 

A church has stood on this site for over a thousand years. The present church was built in 1292 by Hugh De Dingele on the site of an older place of worship. The church has a perpendicular porch which is at least 500 years old and has carved bosses in the beams of the roof, one an angel with hands folded in prayer and a very fine moustache!


The Church is found by going through the blue gate set in the wall at the bottom of Church Lane. From the gate a gravel path leads you through a pleasant gardened walk to the Norman church set on a slight mound with an old graveyard around the building. The walk to the church is along a wooded path set at all times throughout the year with flowers, especially snowdrops and wild daffodils in the spring and naturalised cyclamen in the late summer.
