St Mary Magdalene, Bolney, West Sussex - 22nd June 2004

St Mary Magdalene is the parish church for Bolney, unfortunately there wasn't a guide available in the church so this description is, for the moment, rather light on factual information!

Here are two views of the nave, the first looking east into the chancel and the second back west towards the ringing chamber at the base of the tower.

Her are the church font, organ and the outside of the south door. The organ was rebuilt in 1968 through the generosity of parishioners and friends of the church.

Here are the stained glass windows. The inscription on the first one reads: "In fond memory of Gertrude Margaret Hodgson 1897-1977, church warden of this parish for over 30 years."  That on the second reads: "Lewis Glenton was born on the first day of July MDCCCXV.  He died at Bolney Lodge the twelfth day of June MDCCCLXX."

The inscription on the first window below reads: "This window is dedicated to the glory of God & in memory of Eardley Wilmot Michell, Vicar of this parish from 1912 to 1939 & is the gift of Adelaide his wife and their two children." That on the second, my favourite, reads: "To the Glory of God and the memory of Vivian Tudor Greenyer and his beloved wife Mary Jane Douglas (unreadable) Greenyer of Wykehurst Park in this parish."

This decoration is central on the roll of honour memorial and these royal arms hang in the church.
