Inside St Mary the Virgin's Church, Deerhurst

Recent Photograph of Inside St Mary the Virgin's Church (Deerhurst)

Deerhurst Church is full of interest, originally a Saxon Priory - its tower and nave dating from Saxon times, with north and south aisles added later, respectively in the 12th and 13th centuries.

The blocked opening underneath the east archway was the entrance to an apse, now in ruins, apart from a remaining south wall on which is the carving of the famous ‘Deerhurst Angel’.
