  • Quiet and peaceful church built in and around the remains of the abbey that used to stand here. Mr Milligan's final resting spot.

  • Positioned fittingly in the centre of Winchelsea is the church dedicated to ‘St Thomas the Martyr’ – Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.  A really peaceful historic church. Well worth a look around. There is a lot of history within the area. The architecture and interior are beautiful and a must for local history enthusiasts. The grounds are so peaceful and absolutely wonderful with all the Graves and flowers everywhere. Took me a while to walk around and absorb the beauty of it all.
  • One of my favourite parish churches, visited in January with my brother and family. We were though shocked by the worn path across other graves that had been created by those viewing Spike Milligans grave. Not a good impression.
