Church in the Wood

Church in the Wood

This charming corrugated iron chapel in the woods adjoining Bramdean Common was built in 1883 by Alfred Bishop.

It was to provide a place of worship for charcoal burners and other itinerant people who stopped on the common and for those who lived nearby.
It is managed by three trustees of the Bishop Charity. Evensong services fortnightly from May to September have an average congregation of 15.
