Harrison's description (1911):

ST. NICHOLAS. Restored in 1875. This church is mainly Perp., but piers and arches of the nave are of earlier work (Tr.-Not.); font, Nor. Note: brass to Walter Davy, a former vicar (15th c.); old alms box; old glass; roof; door to rood loft; piscina. The bosses decorating the beams of chancel were brought from the Fitz-Alan Chapel, Arundel, when the roof fell in. Reg. 1653.

Near the church is St. John's Priory, formerly a commandery of the Knights Templars, afterwards transferred to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. It was erected in the 13th c., and in 1780 converted into a private house. It has been recently restored with great taste.
