Kingston is a small settlement under the Downs to the south of Lewes. The Norman church is dedicated to St Pancras. The churchyard is reached through a centrally pivoting Tapsel gate which some believe was invented to allow coffin bearers to pass either side. There are still ancient houses clustering around the church, 'The Street' leads past these, the church and the village pound towards the South Downs Way.
Once Ashcombe Mill stood above the village to the east - an unusual six sweep post mill which succumbed to age and collapsed in 1916.
The village has been extended over the years, with a housing estate being built in the 1960s on former orchard land, together with a new village green, St Pancras Green.
Church details, together with baptism, marriage, monumental inscription & burial records can be accessed by clicking on the church name.
