The church is a grade I listed building and is said to stand on hallowed ground. The Parish Church of Berwick has stood on this ground for more than 1000 years! The first church was built of wood, and one of them was made of flint and part of an existing wall bears testimony to this. The present church was built around the 12th century.
The interesting thing about this church is that the interior was painted by Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Quentin Bell during the 2nd world war. It's very small, very intimate and of course has a beautiful peaceful serenity. The grounds were mostly dotted with old gravestones, covered with moss and wild flowers. A beautiful place with spectacular views over the Sussex Downs.
I hope you're enjoying the summer weather. We had a thunderstorm last night, and it was lovely to hear the rain on the windowpanes.
Last but not least, welcome to my new followers, thank you for joining me!
Time for a cup of tea!
