St Peter & St Paul Parish Church, Wadhurst, East Sussex - 11th November 2004

Wadhurst steeple is 38 metres high.  The church is famed for its large number of iron tomb slabs (over thirty) which are set into the floor - more than any other church in England. 

Wadhurst was not a good photographic experience, as I took lots of pictures only to discover the memory in the camera was full.  A return trip to the car to collect the spare flash card and a repeat performance was necessary!

Here are two views of the nave, the first looking west towards the tower, the second looking east towards the chancel. The organ pipes are mounted high on the west wall and are played by a detached console in the chancel.
