Pett Level – St Nicholas

(image) A church was opened in 1935 to serve the recently developed area adjacent to the marshy levels.  It is in a building purchased from the Admiralty (ESRO Par 528).  When the military took over the area in World War II, worship ceased temporarily. The church today can differ little from when it opened, for it consists of a white-painted main part, little more than a hut, with a later timber west extension that is also the entrance.  Only a cross on the gable of the main part of the building reveals its function.
