I visited this church while taking photos to show what the village like for Sharon from Strong Foundations who's relations came from the village unfortunately it was not open when I went so a return visit to the church was a must. Before you scroll down you might want to get a coffee there are a lot of photo's
St Peter & St Paul can be found off Church lane
St Peter & St Paul.
From along Church lane
The churchyard has many old graves
Some insight and easy to see
Others becoming lost and overgrown.
At the back if you look over the wall you can see the old rectory.
Going inside you find the place is a gem.
With large plaques showing bequeaths to the parish poor
chests with the handbells dated 1882
even the alcove has a flowers in
which though simple has a wonderful stained glass window.
Off to the side is the North Aisle which has a couple of tomb recesses
and where you can see this magnificent Memorial to Lady Cicill Hobbee who died in 1618
At the end you can see some steps half way up the wall, they would have gone to the floor once but came out in rood loft in the nave. You can still see where the floor joists connected to the chancel arch.
The church organ which is at the back of the chapel
The memorial to those who died in the wars
Memorials on the nave walls
graves in the aisle floor
some great kneeler's made by the WI
Looking out of the windows in the North Aisle shows the churchyard
