News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Eight years since Colin Haggart`s visit and this little church is still in fine condition and appears to have been redecorated recently.

Pic. 4 shows the entrance to a former Rood Loft. The steps within the wall have been demolished as the exit (above and to the right) opens to a sheer drop.
Unusually, the harmonium appears to be in reasonable condition, considering the lack of use. Unable to turn the photo.

We found the church was open this time when we visited it today.
