The Parish Church of the
5.6.58 Holy Trinity

- I

Chancel with north vestry, nave with aisles, south porch and west tower with
broached shingle spire. C13 crypt. Built of Mixon stone, Top Chalk, sarsen stone and Quarr stone rubble with tiled roof.
This is one of the most famous and distinguished medieval churches in Sussex.
It may be built on the site of a Roman basilica. The main portion of the
chancel is Saxon but was extended to the east in the late C12 and the vestry
was added about 1200. The tower also is Saxon, except the top storey which
was added in the C15. The nave is C13, the south porch C14. [Double
trefoil-headed piscina and font of c.1200, octagonal with 4 corner shafts.]
Recess in south aisle having C15 flat cinquefoil-headed arch with carved
heads at the end of the cusps. Early C14 effigy west side of chancel. One
of King Canute's daughters is said to have been buried here.
