Church Micro #1457 Waldron
All Saints Church Waldron dates from the 12th Centuary and is believed to be built upon an earlier Saxon Church.
In the mid 19th centuary there were substantial alterations and additions to the building which the Victorians carried out with enthusiasm.
The bell tower is the oldest part of the church and faces the south downs.
On the grass outside the main door there is a Saxon font, one of only three surving fonts in Sussex. According to local ledgend it was removed from the church by Cromwells soldiers in the 17th century and rolled down the hill at the back of the church. It was re-discovered in 1907 at Dengates Farm where it was being used as a cattle trough.
The graveyard is a wildflower conservation area where you will find a number of interesting graves.
