This little church has been converted into offices.
In the parish of Slaugham, this village was the position of a toll-gate and here it is said some kind person provided dishes of pottage to sustain prisoners as they passed along the road. These men may have been captured prisoners taken in the French wars, but in 1761 there was a depot at Seaford for victims of the press gang. In 1802 the registers of Slaugham speak of Pease Pottage gates.
