Church of St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Okewood Hill, Abinger - Mole Valley

Isolated small church dating from C13, virtually doubled in size in 1879 by the architect Basil Champneys. Rendered rubble stone walls with Horsham slab roofs and shingled spire to low timber tower. At risk due to defective rainwater goods and roofs. A phase of repairs has been completed under the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme, however further repairs are required and funds are needed for these.
