St Lawrence's Church, Bidborough Church

Image Source: John Vigar


Bidborough church stands on a steep knoll overlooking a marvellously green valley. The south doorway is Norman, although it was moved and reset when the church was enlarged in the nineteenth century. The chancel is tastefully furnished - light wooden panelling and a blue carpet. These compliment the start turns - windows designed by Burne Jones form Morris and Co. Beneath the tower hangs a lovely pendulum - suitably inscribed, but one wishes it would stop for just a minute to allow it to be more easily read!
