CHURCH OF ST PETER AND ST PAUL

DESCRIPTION + /

Shoreham was one of the early minster foundations in Kent, founded before 700. The present church was built in the reign of Edward III (circa 1230-70) on the site of an earlier church, the Norman chancel of which was found during excavations in 1956-8. That church also had a late 12th century tower. The nave was extended in the 14th century and the 14th century chancel arch was also found. The West tower was built in 1775 to replace an earlier one destroyed by fire. Plan of nave and chancel in one, South aisle and South chancel chapel with continuous arcade.
