St Andrew, Holcombe

A mile from its village down a farm track through fields, the Old Church is set beautifully against a backdrop of tall trees, with the great Abbey of Downside towering beyond. Replacing a Saxon church, the Norman one was itself rebuilt in the later Middle Ages; some work was done in the 17th and 18th centuries but little after that. St Andrew’s is simple and unassuming outside, but the south porch is of great antiquarian interest. Inside, the late Georgian furnishings of box pews, pulpit, desk, west gallery and hat pegs remain. All delightfully unrestored and most atmospheric.
