Abberton – St Andrew’s

This little church is tucked away down a long winding lane with grass growing along the middle of it, ending in a little car park. Then there is a walk through a copse, maybe 100 yards or so, until coming out at St Andrew’s church on a slight hill looking over Abberton Reservoir.

When we arrived there were two gardeners mowing the grass, and their dog was tied up next to a bench out of harm’s way. It looks like it was originally a little stone chapel, with later additions of a brick tower, and a brick extension to the church. On the day that we visited (14th July 2017) the church was open.

There was no noticeboard outside the church, just a board inside the porch, I couldn’t quite reach it for a proper photo . . .
