Feature Sets

Maresfield is a village in the Wealden district of East Sussex, on the N side of Uckfield. The church is in the village centre and has a Perp W tower, a nave of Norman origin and a transept and chancel designed by J Olrid Scott (1875-79).


A note in the church states that the disused font is thought to come from Lutley Chapel in the Forest.





Drummond-Roberts published a photograph of a disused font in Rottingdean church (not seen there when we visited), which is very like the disused font in Maresfield (Drummond-Roberts 1935, 72). See note on fonts with capitals carved from same block as bowl, under Heyshott.
