Yes it was, and it also has a burial crypt that was beneath the centre of the church covered by a very large stone slab with ech fighting on it.the chamber has stone shelves placed down the walls. This slab was a good 18 inch deeper than the over site with no visual stone nor markings inside the church, were in the church footprint it is i can't remember

Hi Trevor,
I believe I was the last person to be married in this church before it was demolished. Unfortunately the marriage is also demolished in 2000.
In answer to the question about the missing bell - It was rung when I was married there after being told that it could not be used as the tower/fittings were thought to be insafe.
I believe the Vicar moved somewhere on the South Coast.

Was this the church that had a bell missing?
