Although the ancient parish was in East Sussex, Horsted Keynes is in West Sussex today.
The Normans built a cruciform church on the site of the Saxon building, with a central tower with transepts to the north and south, a nave to the west and a chancel or apse to the east. Rounded Norman arches support the tower and remains of Norman windows are visible in the south wall of the nave.
Church details, together with baptism, marriage, monumental inscription & burial records can be accessed by clicking on the church name.
