Notes: Brightwell and Sotwell were originally two separate villages, only combined into one since 1948. The church in Brightwell is St Agatha, of 12th century origin, with restoration in 1858 and 1884 (notes by Peter Norton). As well as the unclassified yew recorded in the tree information, a millennium yew was planted west of the church in 2000. This was a cutting from the ancient yew at Stedham in West Sussex.
