Church of St Mary De Haura, Church Lane, Shoreham by Sea - Adur

Norman church built of Caen stone, containing a tall crossing tower with transepts to north and south, and a large aisled chancel to the east. It is a mixture of Romanesque and Transitional architecture. The external masonry varies in condition alongside the need for localised stone, roof and gutter repairs. Urgent repairs and repointing to the west wall have been completed but other repairs still required.
