St George, Crowhurst, East Sussex - 5th November 2004

Apart from the tower, which was built in the 15th century by the Pelham family, the church was rebuilt in the 19th century by Teulon, in 14th century Gothic style (Decorated).  There has been a church on the site for over one thousand years.

This lovely window, in the east end of the north aisle, is sadly hidden from the congregation by the pipe organ - which also prevented me taking a picture that wasn't skewed.

These two rather attractive windows, depicting love and purity, are in the north and south walls of the chancel respectively. "To the Glory of God and to the dear memory of my well-loved wife Mary Elizabeth, this window is put here by her husband, the Rev: J. P. Bacon Phillips, Rector of this parish 1889 - 1917".

The final view of the church is from the north - it is hard to photograph from all angles, being obscured from the south and west by trees and set into a bank which obscures the view from the north and east.

Immediately to the south of the church are the ancient yew tree, which predates the Norman Conquest and the ruins of a small but ancient manor house.

The church has its own web site here.
