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

A return visit today!

I think the wooden screen may possibly be extremely old, also some of the stained glass. There isn`t a pew below the Curates Pew plaque. There has been great changes at this church since I was there a few years ago. Unfortunately, the organ, which is fairly modern, appears to be unused - the seat is missing and one of the keys is faulty.

A few more from today`s visit

The small organ with brass plate. I believe Miss Kingsnorth was the organist for many years.

Edit.  11/05/18
This instrument has been removed and its new home is St. Germans, Germansweek, Devon.

The church is built of flint and some brick, it has a tower at the west end containing two bells. The chancel was restored in 1875, and the rest of the church in 1893.  There is a brass to Symon Snellyng and his wife, which dates from the 15th century.  The registers for births, marriages, and deaths dates from 1590, 1561, and 1569 respectively.
