St. Andrew’s Alfriston
South Downs National Park
Dating back to 1360, the aptly-named ‘Cathedral of the South Downs’ is unique as a village church. Thousands of visitors come to marvel at its beautiful location on the Tye (village green), at the architecture, or simply to enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere inside.

St. Andrew’s is set on a small mound by the river and built in the form of a cross. The central tower and spire dominate the skyline, with a peal of six bells which are rung from the centre of the church.

Unusual view in that the church being reflected in the flood water from the recent rains.
