Syde St Mary the Virgin

St Mary the Virgin, Syde.

Syde is one of the tiniest villages in the country, comprising only 15 households: nonetheless it is a hive of activity and excitement. The Norman church of St. Mary the Virgin is tucked away in a peaceful and contemplative spot and attracts a friendly Sunday congregation as well as plenty of walkers and other visitors. It is a small friendly church which welcomes well behaved animals to its services.
