Harrison's description (1911):

The Church was E.E., but has been altered at later periods. The E. end windows are reticulated , and others are Dec. or Perp. The effect of the number of arches of different heights is pleasing. There is a bust to John Fuller, the patron of Turner, who painted several Sussex views for him. His mausoleum, by Smithe, is in the churchyard. There is a brass to be seen in the church (1476), also some good old painted glass (14th c.).
