Fairlight Cove – St Peter

This part of what is now the united parish of Pett, Guestling and Fairlight was originally in the parish of Pett.  As the population of the parish grew, a converted military hut was opened here in 1947 for worship (church website), but in 1968 was found to be in an advanced state of decay.  A replacement was consecrated in 1970 and although still of timber, is a considerable advance on  its predecessor.  It has a higher main part with a pitched roof and lower parts to east and west that also have sloping roofs.  The main windows are set close to the eaves.
