Church of the Good Shepherd

Above the town of Alfriston, Sussex, on the South Downs is the Church of the Good Shepherd.  I attempted an early morning visit, parked in a lay-by on the Lullington Road and hiked up the South Downs Way in a chill breeze.

The church stands on a small rise in a small churchyard with few graves.

Leaving the grounds of the church I wandered up along the South Downs way again, the wind was keeping the clouds moving quite quickly and so the colour of the immature crops was changing constantly.

I had parked near one of the streams that forms the drainage system for the farmland in the flood plain.
