St Nicholas Church, Pevensey

Pevensey is a village near Eastbourne in East Sussex. The village which lies about one mile inland from Pevensey Bay has grown up beside the remains of Pevensey Castle. The picturesque village sits beside the neighbouring village of Westham and is served by the train stations of Pevensey Bay and Pevensey and Westham. 

St Nicholas Church was built between 1205 and 1216 on the original site of a Saxon priory church dating from the 5th century. The old Pevensey Court House and Gaol built in 1541 sits beside a number of Tudor houses.  This is now a museum and houses the old court room, dock and prison cells.
