SU7602 : St Nicholas' Church, West Thorney

taken 8 years ago, near to West Thorney, West Sussex, Great Britain

St Nicholas' Church, West Thorney
St Nicholas' Church, West Thorney
Seen here quite late on an October afternoon. The building stands within a few yards of tidal waters (even closer than at Church Norton) and just a few feet above high water mark. According to the Sussex volume of Pevsner ('The Buildings of England') the church was once larger and grander, having lost both north and south aisles.

The war graves at the north end of the churchyard can be glimpsed at the right-hand margin of the photograph.
