A couple of pictures of the exterior of St Peter and St Paul, Chaldon. Not an outstanding building, as you can see- but old; there was a church here in Saxon times- and some of the fabric you're seeing may go back that far. The Victorians stuck the funny little spire on. They liked spires- and so do I. The Pilgrims Way runs nearby.
And Croydon is just up the road.
The building at the back- which looks medieval- is a sort of parish hall- and was hosting a preschool nursery group while I was there. The group is called Twiglets.
The church has a reputation for being haunted, but I can't run any specific stories to earth. Put "haunted Chaldon" in your search engine and sooner or later you'll stumble on a photo which seems to show a little grey man either leaning or sitting on a gravestone. As ghost photos go it's one of the better ones.
This unusual tablet- dated 1563- is in the South chapel. It seems not to be a funerary monument but simply an injunction to good works. The text begins "Good redar warne all man and women who.....here to be ever good to the poore and nedy..."
I like that church a lot. Don't get me wrong; I love a nice, orderly baroque church as much as anybody, but there's just a certain charm to the rather higgledy-piggledy structure of some of the old churches that have had bits added on and on and on to them over the centuries. (Also, I quite like that spire. It adds interest to the side view, which would otherwise not be as complex as the gable view.)
