The Church Windows

A new window built into the 1050 South wall of the Chancel. The centre panels contain collages of ancient fragments of glass.

In the panel on the right is believed to be a likeness of Prior Atwell of Lewes.

Below

One of two windows in the 1866 widened North Aisle dating from the 12th century.

They depict Top to Bottom, left to right Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses

These two windows are from the same era as the building of the narrow aisle, and are probably reused in this 1866 wall.
