Layer Breton

St Mary the Virgin is more a wayside chapel than a church and was locked.

ST MARY or ST NICHOLAS. 1923. In it an interesting piece of SCULPTURE: Tondo of the Virgin seated on the ground and playing with the Child; Italian Mannerism.

St Mary the Virgin (2)

Again Mee missed it.

Simon K -

Locked, no keyholder notice. A small 1920s brick-built mission hut, but with an absurdly large and ambitious weatherboarded belfry plonked on top, quite out of proportion.

In fact, the church is not without interest as it contains a number of survivals from its predecessor a mile off, and also from neighbouring Birch.
