The churchyard has been allowed to run wild and is full of large daisies. It's a very peaceful place.
This is a memorial to Annie, Lady Brassey- writer and traveller- who died and was buried at sea in 1887. Many items from her collection of curiosities and artworks can be seen in the museums at Hastings and Bexhill.
