Someone recommended we view the Church and I'm glad we did. Bigger than expected with a downstairs vault you can access. Great history about King Canute and the church featuring in Bayeaux Tapestry. Lovely grounds too.

A place for quiet contemplation and full of interesting history. Don't miss the wonderful stained glass roundels in the chapel.

Lovely church from the outside and even more impressive inside. Well worth a look around as the church has plenty of items to look at. The internal brickwork is especially stunning.

This is a lovely village church, well-maintained and with an interesting jumble of architectural styles. By all means visit it, and leave a small contribution. Or a large one, if so inclined.

The church is a must visit before or after your walk around the bay and visit to the Anchor Bleu for refreshment.

This ancient church is a must visit when you're in Bosham even if you're not particularly religious. Full of history, it even claims the burial place of a monarch's daughter. Pamphlets giving the full historical background are available. Beautiful stonework and architecture and well thought...More

Was really pleased to find this church open and had a lovely wander around inside looking at the history steeped in this church. Illustrated in the Bayeux Tapestry and the burial place of King Canute's daughter, it holds a real place in history. Thank you...More
