Harrison's description (1911):

ST. MICHAEL. Restored in 1862. The church has twin naves, but restoration has destroyed the interest in the building, except for the monuments and brasses in the S. chapel. There is a fine brass to Sir John de Braose (1426), as a knight in plate armour; tomb of child under canopy, supposed to be his son. The Sherley memorials have been damaged and many removed; but portions of the tomb of Sr Richard Sherley (1540) remain, in which he is shown standing and his wife kneeling.

Note: coats of arms of the de Braose and other families in the E. and W. windows; roof and stalls of chancel; and old chest. Font is of Sussex marble (late Nor.).
