Accessibility

Toilets

There is a toilet outside which has room for a wheelchair. Please note that the path from the gate to the church is quite a long way if you have mobility problems.

We try and reserve the parking space closest to the gate for less able visitors, but it is a long walk up the path to the church.

Ramped entrance

We hope we are welcoming to all visitors.

Newtimber church LecternThe original lectern – a carved wooden eagle – was unfortunately stolen, but has been replaced by a modern one given in 1983 in memory of a former churchwarden.
