Independent Chapel, Golden Cross, Lower Dicker, East Sussex - 17th October 2004

This tiny chapel is not visible from the road.  It was opened in 1813 and originally called the Dicker Indepedent Chapel, but following the opening of a much larger chapel two miles away in Lower Dicker, it was renamed Little Dicker Chapel.

Following the circulation of photographs around the internet, Pastor, Terry Brinkley, decided to rename it after the hamlet where it is located after it became rather too popular for people wishing to take "depraved" photographs outside the building.  Mr Brinkley said: "We thought it better to change the sign's wording to Golden Cross Chapel in order to reduce the incidents of both private and commercial vehicles visiting the site to take lewd photographs."
