St Leonard, Seaford, Sussex - 2nd January 2004

The Parish church of Sutton with Seaford.

The church dates from the early 11th century, although there have been many additions since that time.  Brown patches on some of the stonework are burn marks; these are the results of attacks by the French during the Hundred Years War, which started in 1338.
