Stopped here while on a stroll through the village. Set back from the sea down a quiet lane it’s in a quiet location. Inside, high roof but simple design and decor. It may have historical connections but there wasn’t much by the way of decoration...More

The Church sits in the heart of the Old Village, along a lane and on the edge of the Green and the Harbour. Although mostly Norman architecture, parts of the Church date back to Saxon age and it has a fascinating history with King Harold...More

A very interesting church to visit while in Bosham. A small church that has a child's grave that is said to be the daughter of Canute the Great who drowned in a nearby brook and was buried at the church.

A large village church sat close to the harbour and it forms part of what is a stunning view from the opposite side of the harbour, looking back at Bosham. Dates to Saxon and Norman times, with great architecture. Bosham features in the Bayeaux Tapestry...More

Just had a quick visit as not really religious. We heard the pipe organ being played whilst walking past and that drew us inside. The church was lovely and interesting to look around. Our 3yr old asked lots of interesting questions and seemed to enjoy...More

Quite a lot of historical associations in this old church. Well worth a visit. It has Saxon origins and there is a Norman arch along with early English arches. The area (Bosham meadow and quay) out front is (one of many that have been claimed?)...More

Marvellous position best seen first at high tide from across the harbour. Late Saxon (eg 'long & short' work on tower) and early Norman details most impressive both inside and outside - stately chancel arch and early features in chancel. 4 medieval stained glass roundels...More

My homework will be done by next Monday, it is a detailed and insightful glimpse into the taught atmosphere of 1930s Europe.

Interesting church with significant early Norman parts remaining, the tomb of an 8 year old Royal Princess, daughter of King Cnut echoing the history of this small port since Roman times.
