The east window glass is by J R Clayton (1857). The flowing Decorated tracery is wonderful and deserves much better glass! Pevsner describes it as "...more enterprising than is usual in Sussex".
The row of small lights between the five main lights and the tracery of the east window contain old heraldic glass. The shields are of the then reigning house of Plantagenet:
a. John, Duke of Brittany, son-in-law and distant cousin of King Edward III
b. Edward III, King of England
c. John of Gaunt, Lord of the Rape of Hastings (which according to the church guide is presently the wrong way round following its replacement after being removed for safety during the Second World War)
d. Edward, the Black Prince
