We normally go for a walk on New Years Day, but with torrential rain and Gales tomorrow we went for one today.
There were some awesome patterns in the sand at the beach…
We had a mooch at the old Church near the beach,
Evidently the air is clear here, as shown by the lichen on the gravestones…
St Mary’s was the main church in the Sandsting Parish. It was built in the 12th century. It originally had a thatched roof. It was still in use in the 1560’s. It eventually fell into disrepair in the 1760’s.
This is all that remains of the church now.
The wall to the left is not part of the original building but is now a walled family plot.
