Long Description:
This cut bench mark is on a North West buttress left hand side of entrance.
Dating back to 1360, the aptly-named 'Cathedral of the South Downs' is unique as a village church. Thousands of visitors come to marvel at its beautiful location on the Tye (village green), at the architecture, or simply to enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere inside.
St. Andrew's is set on a small mound by the river and built in the form of a cross. The central tower and spire dominate the skyline, with a peal of six bells which are rung from the centre of the church.
Despite its grand appearance, the church was once in a state of disrepair as most of the villagers were non conformists who didn't want to worship in the Church of England church.
