St. CUTHMAN OF STEYNING

Christian Saint

Also known as Cuthmann

A superb saint of Sussex

The English shepherd who pushed his aged mother in a handcart from the West Country to Steyning in Sussex where he built a small church. Christopher Fry’s play ‘The Boy With a Cart’ is a fitting memorial.

A resident of Sussex, he is associated with several local places including Steyning and Chanctonbury Ring.

One among many legends explains how he thwarted the Devil’s plans to destroy Sussex Christians. In the interests of national security we are unable to reveal Cuthman of Steyning’s secret weapon, but it did involve a candle, a sieve and a cock.
