St. Andrew’s, Sotherton is a pretty village church which sits some way from the main village.  There is no electricity or running water and some services have to be conducted by candlelight.  Two panels from the long-lost medieval screen survive as panels to the vestry door, and a splendid carved figure of a crusader knight rests peacefully in an alcove.
