All Saints Church in Buncton has to be one of the prettiest churches I have visited and it is certainly one of the most photogenic. It also has one of the nicest approaches - there is a rather muddy path (there is no road access) down the side of a small valley, over the bridge and up the other side, with almost no sound except for the birds singing away in the trees , then around a corner you'll find the church in one of the counties most tranquil and peaceful locations.

The Pipewell or Ferry Gate was built in the early 14th century along with three others to allow access into the new town of Winchelsea. The road from this gate led down to the ferry across the river Brede. The gate was destroyed in 1380 during a French raid but rebuilt in around 1404.
