Exploring Upwaltham Church in West Sussex

Today Julia Hartley, Cynthia Julian and myself are exploring the terrible tragedies that occurred towards the end of the Second World War close to a rural download church in West Sussex.

St Mary’s the Virgin, The Church in a Field, lies a few miles south of Petworth. A Norman built church with very little changes since 1120. Two aircraft, one a Lancaster Bomber, just back from a Damn Buster raid crashed in the hills near the church killing all the crew. A second plane came down a year later.
