Pyecombe has a particularly attractive church – the Church of the Transfiguration, which dates from the late 12th century and which contains a lead font which, so the story goes, was saved during the Civil War by being painted with whitewash by the villagers to disguise it from looting soldiers.
Pyecombe is also associated with high quality shepherd’s crooks, with the Pyecombe Crook being viewed as the Rolls Royce, Cartier or Cristal of this most important piece of shepherd’s equipment, coveted by bishops across Christendom.
