This stood outside the original town wall and was, in fact, the parish church of Iham, the village that was here long before Winchelsea was built. The church probably fell into decay about 1500 but the walls appear to have been standing in 1763. It is possible that they survived until 1810 when the windmill was moved there from its original site some 200 yards to the north. Below the hillside is the site of Iham’s houses. Below this again was probably the site of a small harbour which existed in Roman times.
