This church seems very isolated, with only a few houses in the area.
The is mention of Newtimber in the Domesday book, but no church. The church was built near to Newtimber Place by the Lord of the manor, in the 13th century. In 1861, Newtimber had only 161 inhabitants. Newtimber Place was occupied by Lady Gordon.
Here is a selection of the windows, we particularly liked the one depicting St Francis of Assisi (extreme left) with the vivid blue irises. The second from the left depicts the St John the Evangelist.
The font is modern. The organ is contained in the vestry to the south of the chancel. There is a small chapel on the north of the chancel. The statue is mounted on a plinth near the west door. The plinth carries the inscription "To the beloved memory of Doreen Fitzroy, wife of Charles Fitzroy and daughter of Earl and Countess Buxton. 29 November 1897 - 29 July 1923 ~ We thank our God upon every remembrance of you."
Finally here are two interior views of the church, one looking east and one west.
