Today I am joined by Andrew Shaxson, local history enthusiast, at St Mary and St Gabriel church in South Harting to explore many of the wonders to be found there.
The Anglican parish church of St Mary and St Gabriel is at the southwestern end of the village street, in an elevated position. It has a coppered spire on the tower and a peal of six bells. Major restoration work was carried out in the 1850s, and In 2010 further improvements were made including the building of an attached room for the Sunday school.
In the churchyard is the tall South Harting War Memorial Cross, (1920) a World War I memorial by Eric Gill.
