St Laurence, Telscombe, East Sussex - 2nd January 2004

Sittuated down a long winding country road, Telscombe only has one way in or out by car.  Sadly despite it's distance from the main road (or perhaps because of!) the church was locked when we visited.

The church was given by King Edgar to the Abbey of Hyde, Winchester, in 966.

The Norman church contains an early English arcaded font from the 13th century.

The church is built high up over the road and into the slope.  This picture was taken from the top of the church yard looking down onto the building.

Here are a couple of detail pictures, the first of a carved stone atop the porch, the second of the weather vane.
