Harrison's description (1911):

ST. LEONARD. This E.E. church has some fine Dec. work in the chancel, in which style are the beautiful E. window, altar-tomb, sedile, and splendid canopied piscina. There are two fine Jacobean chairs. The Nor. basket-work font is similar to that at St. Anne's, Lewes. The N. door is built up. There is no chancel arch. The rood-loft staircase remains, and adjoining this, on the E., is a mutilated low-side window. There are several old stone slabs at W. end, one with Lombardic characters (1376). The fragments of ruins around the church are remains of a parsonage (late 13th c.). Reg. 1579.
