Simply beautiful tiny church dating back to the 11th century and full of history, set in an equally beautiful graveyard. A steep climb up from the seashore is well worth it.

I always try to visit when in the area as it's in a beautiful, quiet spot. The churchyard with it's ancient gravestones tells lots of stories, and the little church is a lovely place to say a prayer.

A very old church great for historians and a nice location on the way to the sea. Open to all with options to purchase picture postcards or take your own photos.

It was rebuilt around 1070 so really old. Lovely serene feeling inside. So much history for such a little church. Parking is limited.

Well worth a visit. An 11th Century church, in calm, serene surroundings. One can easily imagine that little has changed in this church (except a thin heating pipe running around the bottom of the walls). Beautiful in its simplicity and plainess. A walk around the...More

Lovely old church and church yard,take time to sit in the church and reflect. Leave with a feeling of inner peace and don't forget to make a donation to the church fund!

Visited the chapel whilst walking the devils chimney and coastal path to Ventnor. Tiny church, very peaceful lots of history - with information available in the church itself. Candlelit services Sunday evenings (possibly seasonal?). I imagine these are quite a special. We'll worth a visit.
