Saint Nicolas Church - Itchingfield

St Nicolas Church was built circa 1125. The church building still has two walls and several windows from the original 12th century building and many other interesting features from various dates in history. These include 15th century windows, a 12th century aumbry and the unique 15th century tower. The church has been extended several times, notably in the 18th and 19th centuries. At the earlier rebuild, some of the stones were carved with the initials of the Rector and his family and one of them is dated 1713. In 1865 a major extension of the church was carried out under the direction of Sir Gilbert Scott. During this work a Norman altar stone was discovered and restored to the altar where it is still in use today. Post code: RH13 0NX
