A pretty church with lovely stained glass. Not too far from a walk along the river or visit the Clergy house next door. Nice little coffee bar right in the vicinity.

This church is so well looked after and such a beautiful location on a hill. Some lovely old historical graves and such a peaceful feel just sitting on the benches. One of the most beautiful churches we visited on our whole trip.

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 an inspiring building set on high ground overlooking the ancient Tye of Alfriston.Those in the graveyard are the Tye died. Wonderful monument to the way we used to live in previous centuries.

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
