St Leonard's Church in the Wood, Church Wood Drive, Hollington, St Leonards, East Sussex TN38 9PB View on map

Grade II listed 13th-century stone church on an earlier, possibly Anglo-Saxon site, retaining some medieval wall fabric and the upper part of the tower, but otherwise comprehensively restored in 1865 in Early English style and retaining a little-altered later-19th-century interior. The rebuilding was carried out by an unknown architect and at the expense of Miss Matilda Dampner in memory of her parents. Notable tombs and stained glass windows.
