Rusper, West Sussex
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Perhaps the presence of the nuns has a positive effect; in 1975 a boy fell from the top of the tower, a distance of over 70 feet, but suffered only a broken arm. Popular local opinion, perhaps tongue-in-check, was that the presence of the sisters at the base of the tower helped save the boy from more serious injury!
Within the chancel are two memorial brasses; the older, to John and Agnes of Kingsfold, daters to 1380.
