St Andrew, Beddingham, Sussex - 2nd January 2004

A quite lovely church which we found unlocked.  A friendly parishioner told us that everything of value has been stolen from the building so it is only now locked at night.  According to the baptismal roll on the wall, the last baptism occurred here in 1984.

Here are two pictures of the church interior, one looking west from the chancel, the second looking east into the chancel.

The church has delightfully low roofs on the aisles - here is one of the windows nestling under the eaves.  The Victorian stained glass in this church appears unremarkable.

Here are the font and pipe organ.  The pipe organ looks disused, the organ console is in the chancel and there is an enormous loudspeaker on top of the organ case - perhaps it is now electronic re-using parts of the old console?
