Feature Sets

Arundel church was rebuilt after 1380 in an early Perp style. The parish nave was separated from the collegiate E end by a screen which is still in place. While the W end is accessible from the High Street, the E end (Fitzalan Chapel) is accessible only from the Castle. The church is faced in knapped flint interspersed with ashlar blocks. These blocks are clearly reused building material of various dates, and include a voussoir, a mullion, columns and a length of dogtooth. They probably come from the earlier church on the site.

The voussoir probably belonged to the earlier church on the site. It appears to date fromc.1100.
