St. Andrew’s is the oldest building in the parish and the only one to be Grade I listed. Its history is also better documented than the farms and cottages that it has served. Over the following months there will be a series of posts about the history of the church and its rectors. We begin today with three that deal with the building itself: a report by F.A. Howe on the installation of the Keith Memorial Window written in 1951; an essay by Hugh B. Simeon (Rector of Edburton from 1928 until 1936) entitled Saxon Relics — Mass-Clocks (the church has four of these ancient time-keepers); and a very welcome guest post by John Allen, author and editor of Sussex Parish Churches which surveys the known Architectural History of the building.
