The Church / Ceremony
Abbey Farm has the honour of a unique 13th century Church sited on the farm and within walking distance of the Oak Barn. The beautiful Church of St Leonard's, Kirkstead is situated on the farm and listed in Simon Jenkins "Best 1000 Churches". We are trying to discover how many marriages have taken place in this Church since 13th Century, but assume many!
We are so lucky to have this Church on the farm. Seating between 60 – 90 guests, it is reached across the Abbey field by car, on foot through beautiful grass meadows or through a lovely 5 minute woodland walk – a great photo opportunity or a little moment together in your first hour as a married couple to enjoy!
Betsy our Series 1 vintage Land Rover is on hand to collect the happy couple from St Leonards and available for photos back at the barn. She even arrives with a bottle of chilled bubbles in a basket!
