ST. MICHAEL. The churchyard is entered by a little postern in the east wall of the old Castle, a residence of the Bishops of Chichester, and castellated, in 1379, by Bishop Rede. The church was originally Norman; the nave, three windows, blocked-up N. doorway, the chancel arch, enriched with zig-zag, are al of that period; chancel, built by Bishop Neville (c. 1230); S. aisle and tower are E.E., the fine S. door is Dec. and has natural vine and oak leaves on the capitals. There are two square-headed piscinæ and a stand for hour-glass near the pulpit. Font, late Nor. (restored). Note traces of mural paintings; consecration crosses on N. and W. walls; brass to John Wantele, 1424, and a surcoated figure; capitals of window nook shafts.
