Church(Anglican)

Medieval church built to replace an earlier building located in the dunes, perhaps dating back to around the fourteenth century. The present church was restored in 1855-6 at the expense of C.R. Mansel Talbot, and again in 1890-1. The second restoration was partly defrayed by his daughter Emily Talbot, and the architect was Ewan Christian.
