St Andrew, Didling, West Sussex added to Places of Worship in South East by macspite on 06/09/2020

The church stands isolated, surrounded by agricultural land. Visible in the satellite image for this entry is the public footpath leading south from the church to the Wooded and steep slopes of the South Downs. As sheep are often in the fields dogs must be on leads.

Parking is in the lane leading to the church. There are few spaces for tuning, be prepared to reverse a reasonable distance.

The roads leading through the villages and countryside toward the church are narrow and also have great views. This is a location to enjoy at leisure. It is well worth spending a little time in the simple church itself, places of worship rarelt get plainer or more simple.


From wealdanddownlandchurches.co.uk

"St Andrew, Didling is known as ‘ the shepherds’ church’ because of its location on the northern slope of Didling Hill, close to the ancient drovers’ track across the South Downs. The current building dates largely from the early 13th century, although there are indications of an earlier church on the site.

St Andrew’s was constructed with flint walls, which are part rendered and white painted. There is a small west turret which houses one bell dated 1587. A ‘modern’ timber porch has been added to the north side.

There is no division between the nave and chancel at St Andrew’s, but the north wall of the church returns in at the end of the nave. Externally the quoin of this return looks like Saxon long and short work, but realistically this would be reuse of salvaged masonry. The south church wall continues in a straight line through nave and chancel The two south chancel windows have ogee heads which suggests that this wall was rebuilt in the 14th century. The east and north chancel walls both have two 13th century lancets.
The oak pew ends are original 15th century, but the seats and backs are modern replacements.
The altar rails and the pulpit are 17th century Jacobean.
The oldest item at the church is the Saxon font, which could have been retained from an earlier building on the site, or perhaps brought in from elsewhere. It was hand hewn from a single block of Bracklesham stone, and is thought to be on of the oldest fonts in the country."

Church In The Sea (By DavyAerial)

Church in the sea on Anglesey. A very strange place for a church on a tiny island not much bigger than the church itself. Quite easy to find, but limited parking as its down a farm lane once off the main roads. Different view depending on whether the tide is in or out. Also right next door to Anglesey race circuit which is also worth a visit for car and bike fans. Its also where they film a lot of '5th Gear' track action amongst other things.

South Stack Lighthouse, Holyhead North Wales. A famous lighthouse right on the far tip of Anglesey. Easy to find and park up in the pay and display car park.

Porth Wen Brickworks (By DavyAerial)

A great site of an old brickworks. Old buildings and great beaches. Tip of Anglesey, North Wales. Not easy to park as its on an old single lane road but parking can be found. There is debate on the island if its private or not, but the landowner does nothing to stop people visiting and its open to walk to without crossing fences etc. Its a very popular area in the summer but its a bit of a secret too, mainly used by locals. Well worth a visit and if everyone leaves it how they find it I cant see visits stopping anytime soon.

Dolbadarn Castle - Llanberis (By DavyAerial)

A great place for flying and a day out at the lake in Llanberis, North Wales. Parking is easy as there is a small area at the entrance to where the castle is. It's easy to find also. Head into Llanberis and before you enter the town it is on the right when you come out of the 40 zone. Great views of the castle, two lakes and the Snowdonia Mountain range. It is also down the road from the train that takes you up Snowdon.
