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

Great pictures, kyn. The organ that you mentioned was built in 1879 and restored by F. H. Browne of Ash in 2003. Now I am mobile again, I must visit this church.

Grade I church dating from the 14th century when it was rebuilt.  There is a lovely organ here, piscina’s/stoups can be found near the door and altars and some lovely Victorian tiles can be seen inside

















I loved the painted walls and roof!
