Today I am in North Stoke in West Sussex. St Mary the Virgin is a partly 11th-century cruciform building, set in an almost deserted village in a loop of the River Arun and is mostly unrestored. It stands on an ancient earthwork which has pre-Christian origins. The building has architectural features and internal fittings spanning hundreds of years. The church is now looked after by The Churches Conservation Trust.
Today I am lucky to have as my guide Dr Annabelle Hughes, an expert in old churches and timber-framed buildings.
