Many thanks to Jane Seabrook for allowing me to share this image who tells me that the Baptist Chapel was built in Victorian times by one of the gentry, when he became too old or unwell to make the weekly Sunday trip by horse and carriage to Lewes to attend the Jireh Chapel there. The services were apparently two hours long. Which building is the chapel is unclear, although is possible the one with two gables in the mid-distance.
Here is a recent picture from the same location; the old post office has survived, and the Victorian building in the distance, believed to be the minister's house.
