Hello Hannah, Carys, Jas, Sam, Florrie, Anna, Chris and new baby! We have really enjoyed visiting wild ruins together as a couple, and thought it would be ever so fitting to suggest a little adventure to one of our favourite wild ruins in Sussex. Maybe you could plan a trip together and take a picnic! If and when you manage to visit, please take a selfie for us <3 we love you xxx

Bedham Church
Bedham, RH20 1JR

The enchanting ruin of Bedham church lies within the South Downs AONB between the bluebell woods at Flexham Park and the Sussex Wildlife Trust nature reserve called The Mens. Bedham church was built in 1880 for a thriving community of charcoal burners who lived in the surrounding area. In Bedham, like many small communities at the time, in the absence of a local school it was down to the church to provide basic education. The church was used for worship and for education, and last thing on a Friday the chairs were turned away from the children's desks to face the altar.
