Exploring Sussex Churches

Talks - History; Talks - General Interest

Event Description

This talk looks at the wide variety of churches to be visited in Sussex, from those built by the Saxons to those in the nineteenth century that charged for admittance. Flint is the local building material but having a coastline meant that other, more expensive, materials could be brought from elsewhere, so the churches really do vary in appearance. The lecture looks not just at the architecture of the buildings but at a variety of stained glass, furnishings, and monuments. John has written a popular book entitled `Exploring Sussex Churches`.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
