Berwick Church - A visit, a walk and a drink.

At the weekend we had a beautiful walk on the Downs at Berwick, between Brighton and Eastbourne. For anyone looking for a beautiful place to walk and a good pub this is a great spot. The Downs are stunning and at this time of year all the fields are turning yellow with the Rapeseed plants coming into flower. The Cricketers is a lovely old pub with good food and good sized garden.

The spire of Berwick Church can be seen for miles and inside the church are murals by artists from the Bloomsbury group.
Influenced by the frescoes of Renaissance Italy, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant transformed this traditional Sussex church with a series of murals. They used their friends as well as local people and places to depict the life of Christ against the background of war torn Britain.
Opening hours
Open everyday until dusk.
