Friends (FSHCT) visit to Holy Trinity, Hurstpierpoint
Sunday 14th October 2018 at 2pm
The season finishes, as it began, with Charles Barry, who built a new church at Hurst in 1843-45. Unlike St Peter’s in Brighton, there was already a medieval church on the site, and this was totally replaced.
Barry designed the new building in a Gothic style earlier than that adopted for St Peter’s; the plan is more developed and there is much carved stonework, some of it easily visible from the gallery above a modern set of parish rooms, which is worth a visit in its own right.
There is NO car parking available at the church, but the public car park on Trinity Road (BN6 9SJ) is less than 5 minutes’ walk away (no charge in the long stay section). Slightly further away is another at Brown Twins Road (BN6 9PA), and there may be spaces on the residential streets around.
Tea will be provided at Holy Trinity. The inclusive cost will be £9 per head. Please send a cheque made out to Friends of the Sussex Historic Churches Trust, together with the attached booking form below:
