Parish picture

There has probably been a church in Ringmer on the present site for at least 1000 years. The earliest part of the fabric which can be dated is the nave arcade; the arches are Early English in style and are therefore probably 13th century. The masonry indicates that the aisle roofs have been raised at some point in the building's history.
