Parish Church of St Andrew, The Tye, Alfriston, Wealden - Wealden

C14 parish church; cruciform in plan with a central tower and spire, known as the Cathedral of the Downs. Knapped flint walls and tiled roof. The spire has recently been repaired. However, the church walls are damp due to hard cementitious mortar trapping moisture. Some remedial lime repointing has been carried out in the chancel.
