Church of St Peter and St Paul

Church of St Peter and St Paul

 Heritage

The parish church is believed to be on the site of a Saxon church, evidence of a Norman church exists. The double roof was originally entirely covered with Horsham Slabs, some of which remain.

What do you notice about the church clock – it only has one hand, the hour hand! A minute hand would have made the working of an 18th century clock very complex, and the hour hand was more important to tell when a church service was about to begin.

Edenbridge has significant connections with the Arts and Crafts movement – the stunning Burne-Jones window is at the east end, and the grave of the architect Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott (1864-1945) and his wife Kate lies in the old cemetery, beside the Church Street boundary wall. His memorial is an obelisk, topped with a small metal cross.
