Long Description:
This CBM is on the South facing aspect of this beautiful Village Church.
The Church was built between 700 and 800 AD and is perhaps the oldest Saxon Church in Sussex. A grand Saxon porch has a sundial inscribed 'Eadric'(will be listed under Sundials)and a fine Norman carved doorway. The imposing tower, with its pyramidal cap, is Norman work, and has a complete series of carved corbels. These depict wonderfully stylised heads of people and animals.
The nave is basically Saxon, but extended by the Normans with the addition of a north aisle and chancel. Although the aisle has 11th century windows, the arcading and chancel arch are later Early English work of about 1200. The chancel has decorative blind arcading with delicate zig-zag carving and a spacious vault.
