Long Description:
This cut bench mark is on the South West buttress.
This fine church set under the shadow of Mount Caburn (480 feet above the Channel), has been here since Norman times with many alterations since then. The Nave is Norman with blocked windows in the north arcade, and the aisles were rebuilt, probably in the Early English period.
The Clerestory and Chancel are 14th century and decorative The Font and Tower on documentary evidence dates to about 1541. The south nave arcade has massive piers and moulded square abaci with unusual decoration. There is a charming remembrance window on the left of the door and there are two stone heads on the arches, one with a tongue that has been 'out' for 700 years.
There was a Monastary at Beddingham in time of Offa 757-796.
