In the Hastings Observer dated Friday June 22nd is an article entitled ‘Help us to share our historic hidden gem’ about one of the high points of 1066 Country – St Andrew’s church.
The article begins:
“If you didn’t know if was there, blink and you would miss St Andrew’s Church with its majestic tower, historical graveyard and interesting architectural features.
Yet this hidden gem is well worth a visit and conveniently located at the highest point of Fairlight in Coastguard Lane, where Fairlight Road and Battery Hill meet – just a 10-minute drive from Rye of Hastings, and on the 101 bus route.”
The article includes information about the history of St Andrews, from when it was built in 1845 up to the present day events that happen; information about the famous and interesting people it holds in its graveyards; and details of the tower that you can climb, ring the bells and on a clear day even see France.
