Geocache Description:

St. Mary's is where we were married. You do not need to enter the Church boundary to locate the cache. When published we let loose two travel bugs.

Tarring Neville lies on the main A26 Newhaven to Lewes road, and consists only of a church, 2 farms and a few cottages.

The area was settled in the Iron Age with tumuli and settlements behind the village on top of the South Downs at Itford Hill.

The village must have been somewhat larger in the past, as the Domesday Book records its value as £8.00 which is more than most villages in the area. Its main business was shipbuilding together with fishing and salt production.

It is generally believed that the village was decimated by the Black Death, and that it never recovered.

The church which was mainly constructed in the 1100 - 1200's contains an iron chest brought ashore from one of the vessels in the Spanish Armada.

Tarring Neville has some nice views across the Ouse valley towards Piddinghoe.

Behind the village lies the magnificent South Downs with their flint built buildings and beautiful views.

If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.

Find...

  • St. Marys Church in 1990This is a view of the church as it was just before our "special" day. The trees have now grown to obscure the church which is sadly now usually locked. The churchyard is now used for a sheep-pen. (that's progress!)
