St Mary, Appledram, West Sussex - 16th June 2008

St Mary, Appledram, West Sussex - MTC

The church comprises an undivided nave and chancel and a south aisle of three bays, the easternmost one, formerly a chapel, now contains the organ whilst the western bay contains the font.  The south porch and door enter into the central bay.

The three eastern lancets contain attractive glass depicting St Michael, Christ and St Gabriel.

And a view of the chancel - the 13th century eastern triple lancets in all three walls are glorious with their Purbeck stone shafts with and circular abaci creating quite lovely arcades around the windows.

And another view looking back west from the chancel.

The exterior of the east end is hard to photograph owing to the closeness of the churchyard boundary.  This is the best I could do, however the masonry on the north side clearly shows how the chancel has been lengthened.

This blocked opening in the north wall looks as if it may have been an original window by the small arched top stone - although the amount replacement stonework suggests a door sized opening?

A final view of the south side, the attractive elevation that greets the visitor or worshipper on entering the church yard.
