Next Meeting: 31 July, visit to All Saints Danehill
This visit complements the earlier visit to St Giles at Horsted Keynes. There is no Saxon stonework here as the church was built at the end of the 19th century. However the church building is to a very high standard. The architect, G F Bodley was renowned for the Gothic Revival style. There are fine stained glass windows by Kempe. The churchyard is famed for its orchids and waxcap fungi.
Meet at 7:30pm at the church. Open to all.
