51/47 The Parish Church of St Thomas the Martyr

GV I

This was or was planned to be a cruciform church, but the nave was either never finished or was burned by the French in the C14. The chancel with aisles and the arches and ruins of the transepts remain. Except for the C15 West porch, the whole building is C14 and is the finest Decorated work in Sussex. The church contains earlier canopied tombs. A magnificent feature is the modern stained glass, designed by Edward Strachan, which fills all but two of the windows. Photographs in the National Buildings Record.
