Old Church Fleet  

Old Church

The chancel is all that remains of the old church after a very violent storm wrecked it in 1824. Much of the village was destroyed and the sea even breached the Chesil Bank.  

This was a notorious area for smuggling during the C18 and was immortalised in the novel The Moonfleet by J M Falkner.  The 'new' church of Holy Trinity was built nearby on safer ground in 1827-9.
