Details

This atmospheric and remote pre-Conquest church is set within a ring of trees, beside a lane leading to Chickney Hall.

Approaching from the west one first sees the 14th-century tower, capped by an elegant pyramid-style shingled spire. Beyond are the Saxon nave and chancel, extended eastwards early in King Henry III’s reign.

The unspoilt interior is a delight, with its brick floors, 14th-century king-post roof, richly carved 15th-century font, Georgian pulpit, and squint giving a view to the altar with its medieval mensa slab.
