From Viking & Roman, through William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, 18th Century Highwaymen and up to present day, the village and surrounding area has a rich and fascinating history.

The ruin of St. Mary’s old church sits on a hill at the centre of the beautiful 40 mile long Greensand Ridge walk, which can be seen stretching out to the east and west along a long line of monastic buildings and a Roman trackway. The views from the observation tower are spectacular. The spiral staircase is enchanting and has been sympathetically restored to make it safe for the public to use.

St. Mary’s old church is a Grade II* listed building and a scheduled ancient monument, that is believed to date from the 10th century.

Join us for a one hour historical tour of the site including a tower tour, followed by tea / coffee & homemade cake and a chance to discuss the history of the local area in our Nest.


Total time = 2 hours, £5 per person (minimum 6 people).

Or upgrade to a full cream tea, £13 per person.
