Explore small 11th century churches in rural Sussex

Explore small 11th century churches in rural Sussex

This picture shows the beautiful church of St Leonard in South Stoke village, near Arundel, West Sussex.. It was recorded in the Domesday Book – a great land survey from 1086, commissioned by William the Conqueror – when the village was named as "Stoches".

To find the church head for Arundel then travel down Mill Road until the road ends in a t-junction. Turn left, following the signpost to South Stoke. Go beyond the entrance to the farm and turn left with the road – the gate to the church is down a (signposted) short pathway to the right, about one hundred yards further on. Well worth finding!

Enjoy art? Visit the Downland Art Society summer exhibition!

Enjoy art? Visit the Downland Art Society summer exhibition!

Held at the Norfolk Centre in the beautiful setting of Arundel in West Sussex, the first exhibition of the year takes place in spring and is followed by another one in late summer.

These are always popular with locals and visitors to the area due to the consistently high standard of work produced by the society. The work of several of their artists has become collectable and they have established quite a following locally.

Works can be purchased on the day of your visit and they have a selection of un-framed originals for ease of transportation by overseas visitors. There is always something new to see as works are replaced as they are purchased.

The Downland Art Society subjects cover familiar landscapes and seascapes, people and animals – in oil, watercolour, acrylic and pastel.

When: Friday 19 August – Friday 26 August 2016
Where: The Norfolk Centre, Arundel, BN18 9PA
