so why commemorate that particular 100 year period Roy  -  something of note happen perhaps, or a longer than expected renovation period. ;D

Paul just checked why 100 years.

The church was built with local quarried Horsham stone funded by a widow as memorial to her late husband at a cost of 4000 to 5000. Work started in 1878 and was completed on the 1st November 1878 All Saints Day.

well, wasn't that a quickie build Roy  -  they must have had DIY SOS to help. ;D                    I'd assumed it was an old church judging by the appearance, but obviously not.
