The church dates from the 12th century. It was the mother church for the local area until the late 19th century The church description will give you a good idea of some of its more obvious features, a modern one of which is the millennium window. The annual church meeting (APCM) report for last year summarizes many of its last year’s activities; please contact any of those mentioned if you would like to get involved.
The monthly pew sheet gives all of the topical information. Casting a slightly wider net, The Rock is the excellent newspaper of the group ministry – a good read if ever there was one! The people and links page is self evident as are those for the services, stop press, feedback and things of interest. The What’s on page promotes some, intentionally all, of the planned activities.
My apologies if some pages on this site seem to be a little odd on the latest version of Internet Explorer or Firefox. A solution is being worked on (but slowly, I’m afraid). Some of the downloads might have to be copied first if you want to print them.
Tudor – 1485 – 1603
The Tudor house was defined by its Tudor arch and oriel windows. The Tudor period was the first period to move away from the medieval style houses and was more like a timber framed country house. Today Tudor houses are all listed building and highly sought after due to there location and the amount of space and history involved. Tudor houses are an expensive housing option so be prepared for the financial layout and upkeep costs. If that doesn’t put you off then buying a Tudor house could be a great investment and opportunity to keep English heritage alive.
