Geocache Description:

A straight forward church micro cache which replaces the old one by th14.

Holy Trinity church dates from shortly after 1369, It is near to equi-cruciform, or Greek Cross, in design. The height is enhanced by the fact that it stands on a mound; the tower is 58 feet high. The church is 90 feet long and 70 feet wide across the transepts. Four columns support a tower containing three bells. The roof is largely covered in Horsham stone – it underwent major repairs in 1993. Substantial restoration had previously also been carried out in the early 1800s. This was when the chancel screen was erected at the entrance to the South transept.The north transept contains the vestry and the organ and a fragment of painted glass from 1421, showing the Annunciation. Apart from a few pieces in the north window, other glass in the church is clear, giving the whole building a great deal of light. The East window is a good example of a five light window and is facsimile of those at Alfriston in east Sussex and Tarring in West Sussex. The porch was built over the grave of Michael of Poynings’ grandson Richard who died in 1430 – the Poynings coat of arms can be seen in the gable. The West door is dated 1608. It was at one time blocked to allow entry to a gallery.
