Number 2000 in the series
Thank you to everybody that has helped make this series so popular
St Leonards Church, near the village of Turners Hill in West Sussex, commands the highest point in the village at over 600 feet above sea level and is afforded some magnificent views over the surrounding countryside of the South Downs. The impressive church was built in 1895, the foundation stone being laid in 1894, to a style chosen by Victorian architect Lacey Ridge. Owing to a shortage of funds, the tower was not included in the original contract and in fact didn't get built until 1923/24
Inside the church there are many fine paintings and examples of contemporary stained glass windows. The tower contains a full peal of bells which are rung from ground level, which requires ropes some 70 feet in length. There is a car park for the church and a small lay-by opposite but take care as its quite a busy road.
The coordinates will take you to the North facing entrance where you need to find when liz raised the flag.
