Harrison's description (1911):

ST. NICHOLAS. Restored in 1860. In the old village, north of the railway, is the ancient church, a flint building, originally Tr.-Nor. (about middle of 12th c.), of which the columns and arches of the nave and tower remain; the chancel and low-side window are E.E. Note: sedilia and piscina; a fine oak chest; a brass plate brought from West Blatchington; roof. The base of font is Perp. The fine Brackenbury Chapel at the W. end, built over the vault of the ancient family of that name, was erected in 1874. The church is built on sloping ground, and the floor rises from W. to E. Porch, late 13th c. Reg. 1666.
