Preview: Crumbling Churches Ep

This is work in progress, but the Bald Explorer, AKA Richard Vobes, shall be trudging the countryside in search of our heritage and traditions. In this forthcoming episode, he is trying to find out what is happening to our crumbling churches. These are monuments that have stood at the centre of our communities for hundreds of years. People have been baptised, married and buried here and so they are immersed with social history and we cannot let them fade away.

In this preview, Richard is looking at the Saxon church of St. Botolphs, near Bramber in West Sussex. It was once much larger with a northern aisle but as the local inhabitants dwindled the church was restored to its original size.

Production is ongoing and it is hoped the episode will be completed by the end of March 2013.
