The following building shall be added to the list:


Former chapel, later granary, derelict at time of survey. Erected by Thomas Smythe c.1671 to replace the old Parish Church about 200 metres north of Binderton House which had been demolished by his father c.1660 "because it stood in his light". Single chamber of flint with red brick dressings. Roof missing. Front elevation has a round-headed arch with keystone and impost blocks. Stringcourse, and full height pilasters and plinth. 2-light mullioned window. Side elevations have moulded cornice, pilasters and plinth. Further mullioned window to rear. The interior is lined with stone blocks. The building was never consecrated and the only person to be buried here was Thomas Smythe in accordance with his will of 1687-8. In the C18 the building was used as a granary and in 1839 Smythe's body and monument were removed to West Dean Church. The building was restored in 1984. See Sussex Notes and Queries. 3. 1930 pp 85-87 Sussex Archaeological Collections 117. 1979 pp 109-124.
