Period: Norman

Features: Apse, Nave area

Location: 7 miles NW of Chichester, on the W of the B2141 between Chilgrove and South Harting.


St Mary’s is a minute, single cell, Norman church with a nave and apse, dark and mysterious, and probably much like countless others in that age. It is approached through a farmyard that makes its ancient appeal even stronger and more authentic.
