Feature Sets

Heavily restored in the 1860s by Woodyer, the church has a single nave with opposing N and S doorways, and a large chancel. There is a bell turret with a broach spire over the W gable.






This font probably dates from the early 13thc., but has been heavily restored. It is included in the Corpus because it is a descendant of the square Sussex marble fonts produced in great numbers throughout Sussex in the late 12thc. See note on this type of font under Heyshott.
