Church of St Nicholas, London Road, Arundel, Arun - South Downs (NP)

Well-proportioned town church, re-built in 1380. Unusually the adjacent Fitzalan Chapel and Lady Chapel to the east are in Roman Catholic use. The church is at risk due to spalling stonework, decay to the west window, north transept roof and drainage. Historic England/Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided repairs, including to the tower, completed successfully but further repairs are required.
