“A beautiful place of history and worship”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

Lots of interesting history to learn about in this ancient church. Outside there is a place called the Prospect which has wonderful views over the river and you can walk down a secret path to The Royal Hotel for afternoon tea.

“Spot the hedgehogs...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

Family friendly church with interesting history. Colouring/spot the hedgehog game to keep little 'uns amused while you soak up its past.

“A unique piece of medieval history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

It has the only original Rhenish Helm tower of its kind in the UK and is just a beautiful church. Beautiful walks on the South Downs nearby.

“A Place to Reflect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

I like to drop in here every now and again. It is an old Saxon (tower) church with Norman nave. The church yard is well worth a stroll around. Provides food for thought.

“Quaint Historic Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

Lovely old church unfortunately cut off from Sompting by the main A27 dual carriageway. Norman or even Saxon I would guess.
