Our first photographic venue will be Holy Trinity Cuckfield, West Sussex, RH17 5JZ.

We meet at 10am in The Old School adjacent to Holy Trinity Church. 'RPS' signs will direct you to the Committee Room on the first floor where coffee and tea will be available and details for the day will be covered.

 

PARKING; There is very limited parking near the church and we have been asked not to park in Church Platt. Adequate parking is available in the main village car park in Broad Street and it is a short walk to the Old School and Church.

Holy Trinity is the Parish Church for Cuckfield and dates from the 12th century. It is known for the unique painted ceiling of the Chancel (1865) and Nave (1886). The church also contains many stained glass windows and memorials.

We will have lunch at The Cowdray Arms (optional).

In the afternoon we will visit St Nicholas' Parish Church in Worth, West Sussex. Worth is known for the large Saxon arch at the east end of the Nave, possibly one of the largest Saxon arches in existence.

We have agreed with the Church management that photographs will be for personal non-commercial use only.

 

Risk Assessment

The paths around these churches may be uneven, particularly where trees line the paths. There are threshold steps at the entrances and also steps inside leading to the altar. Please advise the organiser if you have any disabilities.

This field trip is limited to a maximum of 15. This is a free event, but booking is essential. Please contact the event organiser if you have any questions. As with all church visits, we suggest a donation to the church in the Donations Box.
