All Saints Parish Church, Patcham, Brighton, East Sussex - 25th October 2004

This ancient church is situated in the Old Village part of Patcham.  The cement rendering is hideous - an unwelcome contribution of the Victorian restorers.

All Saints Parish Church, Patcham, Brighton, East Sussex - 25th October 2004 - MTC

The church contains a wall painting of Judgement Day above the Norman Chancel arch, we sadly couldn't see it as the building was locked.  The image is around 22 feet long and is said to be the oldest Doom painting in the country.

The organ of the church was brought from Craigwell House, Bognor, and assembled here as a memorial to George V, who stayed there

The church also contains an unusual monument in chalk, of Richard Shelley, a 16th century ancestor of the famous poet.  The monument is set into the wall and has a nude figure with a spade each side of the coat of arms.

The church have their own website, here.
