Church of St Clement and St John
Horsley boasts one of the most attractive village churches in the county, sitting on a hill, set amongst flowers and trees. Dedicated to St Clement and St James, it also serves the communities of Coxbench and Kilburn. It dates back from the 13th century but has been restored and altered much over the years.It has a strongly butressed 14th century tower and spire, a pretty porch with a medieval crucifix, and a lovely array of windows with the fine 15th century clerestory under a handsome parapet of battlements and pinnacles.
The interior of Horsley church is wide and light with North and South aisles, the arcade on tallish circular piers, the North arcade octagonal. It contains a large, Perp octagonal font, an Elizabethan chalice and scraps of ancient glass in a window.
