I had considered going to Audley today but the forecast was awful so I didn't. When I woke it wasn't as bad as I feared so I wandered out I decided there haven't been enough churches on the blog lately (for obvious reasons) and I knew Chickney (which is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust) would be open.
As I've said before when I first tried to find Chickney about 20 years ago it was a nightmare. I had driven past many times but never knew where Chickney was (I had been on the road as well). Today ? flipping easy as there are signposts saying CHURCH :) Apparently there are 38 people or so in the village.
The church was built pre the conquest (end of 10th/beginning of 11th Century). This is not evident from the outside but inside the Saxon origins are more obvious. This is not a church that the Victorians messed about with
It's a lovely little church and great that the CCT keep it open.
