Photographer's Note

Autumn colours cloak the landscape around little Coombes Church nestled on a steep slope of the South Downs along the banks of the River Adur, West Sussex, England; Coombes Church dates from Norman/Saxon times. The nave dates from 1100 or before and the chancel was built in the 13th and 14th century. The church contains some amazing wall paintings of around 1100 which depict the gospel story of the birth of Jesus. Re-discovered only in 1949, these have survived from the time when English churches were richly decorated, and pictures were used to teach the Gospel to those who could not read.
