I love visiting churches and this was a nice example. It had a crypt downstairs which was interesting, some good local knowledge to be read inside and some interesting vistas to take pictures of.

Loved this church. So much history in here, including the grave of the daughter of King Canute, and Bosham itself features in the bayeaux tapestry.

We have visited this Church on a number of occasions over the years and it has always been open, which is a joy in itself. This is everything a village church should be and it has been within the centre of the community way back...More
