|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Church is a Grade 1 listed building. It is built on what may well be a pre-Christian sacred site.The church is within a benefice that also includes Arlington, and Wilmington churches.
The church is of national, and arguably international, artistic and cultural significance on account of the extensive 20th Century Bloomsbury murals which attract about 10,000 visitors each year.These were commissioned by Bishop Bell of Chichester in 1941 and adorn the nave walls, the Chancel Screen, the pulpit and both sides of the Chancel Arch.They were executed by the Bloomsbury artists Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Quentin Bell who lived nearby at Charleston Farmhouse.
