A very quaint little church surrounded by woodland. looks even more enchanting in the snow. They hold a coffee morning on the first saturday of every month and the bacon sandwiches are amazing.

The area is quite replete with history and this place is no exception. If you love old churches and the local history then a walk along here on a sunny day is quite the treat.

Very quiet and peacfull. It's a really nice place for a walk in the coutryside. What lets in down in my view is lack of signs to let people know where they can go.

This picturesque church in a small wood is difficult to find and is at the end of a what looks like school road. This little hidden enclave is surrounded by woods and generations of Hastings graves. Another place to escape the hustle and bustle of Hastings

If you want a peaceful walk through woods and visit a beautiful church, then this is the place to go. On a warm summer afternoon it's the most perfect place to be. The church is really old but it is not always open, but be sure to visit if 9you get the chance.

We were met with such affection and welcoming and spent time with members of the congregation over a cuppa. We were helped to the grave which had... More
