This wee church has a mixed dedication to St Mary the Virgin (maybe just for an altar?) and St James, patron of pilgrims.
It is a very simple church of a Saxo-Norman confusion date with fourteenth century additions and then a restoration in 1892 after a period of disuse. Across the lane is a cute pond.
The Selwyn family of Friston Place have ‘swimming pool’ calibre tombs (we call them swimming pools in honour of the grading used by the church books as we think they are very like the grading of hotels which can only reach 5* if they have a swimming pool).
The views from the church to the south are very fine.
The A259 runs right past.
The churchyard has a distinctive and famous centrally pivoting Tapsell Gate (which we can’t help thinking looks a bit like a part from a playground).
