Founded ca. 1360, Grade 1 listed St. Andrew's is a fine example of a 14th century parish church which has had no major later additions. Standing on a mound, and built from flint in the form of a Greek Cross, its glorious setting, nestling in the heart of the South Downs, surely has few peers. It is a special place... More

One of the loveliest churches I have ever visited with breathtaking acoustics It's one of only 17 churches in the entire country that has the bell ringers in the midst of the congregation This is well worth a visit

Beautiful old church well worth a look. Shaped as a cross it has an interesting bell ringing right in the middle of the isle, very unusual.

What a marvelous location, so tranquil. Well worth just walking around such a glorious area. I would not go in summer months as I think the area would be very very busy

If you visit the Clergy House then a visit to the Church provides a link as both buildings share a history. Interesting cruciform shape and worth visiting when the bells are ringing as they are in the centre of the Church. Needs help with restoration so a donation is always welcome.

Lovely peaceful church to visit. Located on The Tye. Rarely have I seen so much green area around a church. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful church from the 14th century stands on the edge of the village green, beside the old clergy house of almost the same date and by the river Cuckmere.
