History of St Nicholas Hurst

St Nicholas is a Grade I listed building in a rural conservation area. The original building was a wooden structure erected between 1078 and 1084 and was replaced with a stone building around 1084. Alterations to the building were made in the 13th and 14th centuries and the brick tower was added in 1612. The tower has a peal of 8 bells rung every other week by the benefice ringing team. The organ was installed in 1977.

A separate parish room contains a kitchen, toilet and a gathering area generally used by the Sunday school.

The churchyard is closed for burials but open for the burial of ashes and over burying. The churchyard surrounds the Church and there is an annex across the road.

The church building is open to visitors from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays from April until October.
