A church in the lea of the Downs

Tucked somewhat magically under the Downs at the end of a lane, this medieval parish church is beautifully located inside a walled churchyard.

Only the thirteenth-century chancel and fifteenth-century tower survive from the medieval parish church. For a while, after E S Prior's new church was built in 1889, the chancel was used as a mortuary chapel.

An elegant early Georgian reredos forms a single composition with the communion rails.
