Long Description:
"The approach to St. Andrew's Church, Preston is delightful. A lychgate said to be partly constructed using timbers from the burnt down courthouse at Sutton Poyntz, offers a charming place to sit and admire the flowers which adorn the pathway, and of course the church itself. The church is 14th century although built on the site of a Saxon church. The font remains from the Norman church. During the sixteenth century the south aisle was added and the tower was rebuilt incorporating some of the 14th century materials."
