St Peter & St John the Baptist, Wivelsfield, Sussex - 15th November 2003

Until inspecting an Ordnance Survey map I had no idea there was an ancient parish church in Wivelsfield.  On a glorious November morning a made a visit to find a wonderful building.

However I was a  little surprised to find a circle of rustic wooden garden furniture arranged in a semi circle around the chancel arch, the organ encased in polythene and dust sheets all over the floor.  An explanation was soon to be had from some friendly ladies who were discussing the practicalities of a forthcoming flower festival.  Apparently the church heating system was being renewed and the garden furniture was for a nativity play!

Here is a picture taken inside the building.  The dust sheets on the floor are plain to see!
