Need directions to the Old Sheldon Church ruins

Hi! I am getting married at the Old Sheldon Church, but live in NYC. I really need some driving directions from the Beaufort AND Charleston areas. I've only been to the site once, so am not so great at writing out directions. Does anyone know? Thanks so so so much!

Your question intrigued me since I am interested in the Beaufort area, so I looked online to find what I could find. This little historical page gives the closest approximation to directions that I could find - that, & I was able to verify that Old Sheldon Church Road is also SSR 21 on some highway maps, the ruins are "near Yemmassee", and they "sit at the boundary of the old Tomotley Plantation".

The locals seem proud that the old ruins aren't shown on any maps that the general public has access to, so I'm gonna hazard a guess that you'll have to arrive early & ask around when you get to Beaufort, or just drive SSR 21 till you find it. Here is a link for the Tomotley Plantation that may help out: south-carolina-plantations.c...

Have fun exploring! (Was this a test on your fiance's part, LOL?)

Too late for your question, but we found it at Chtistmas on our way to Florida. I've posted the map on the Yemassee, South Carolin page.

I know this is late and a little off base, but I see that you were to get married in the Old Sheldon Church ruins. I note this because I fell in love with this location and wanted to have my own wedding there. There has been only one problem, I cannot find any contact information for the location. I have emailed the city several times with no response, and was wandering if you could send me the contact information. Thanks in advance!

Did you ever find out who to contact for this location? I too would like to get married there. If you did get married there, could you give pointers as to how you did it all?
