Visit Sompting and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Sompting, West Sussex, has one of the oldest churches in the country, the Parish Church of St Mary. It is mainly Norman, but there is considerable Anglo-Saxon work in evidence, especially the tower, which is early 11th century. The chancel is mainly Norman, with some Anglo-Saxon work, and the north transept is divided by 12th century arches. The chapel is 14th century. The 100 ft high tower is unique in England, the pyramid cap of shingle having a steep gable rising into it from each wall face; known as a “Rhenish helm”, this type of tower is common in villages along the Rhine.
Another building of architectural interest is the manor house, Sompting Abbots, now a preparatory school.
