St Mary - Upwaltham

I don't think we realise in the UK just how much heritage there is in the UK.

For instance on Saturday I was in West Sussex and driving along came across St Mary the Virgin, Upwaltham. It sits now a grassy lane and sits in "god's acre" amid fields. Skylarks could be heard singing.

The church is 12th century meaning it is over 800 years old and has seen much come and go. It was built by the Normans which with its apse is clear to see. Strangely there was a couple there admiring it. Let us hope it sees another 800 years serving its tiny community.
