Upper Dicker is a small village north west of Eastbourne . It grew up around Michelham Priory. The priory was a natural stopping point for travellers between Lewes and Battle in medieval times, and the area of Upper Dicker probably became a trade centre, with the travellers dickering (bartering) for goods from the local tradesmen.
The church was locked on the day of our visit. The neat Victorian church was built in the Norman style in 1843 of flint with stone dressings. There is a bell cote on the west end. The architect was W J Donthorne.
Here is a side view of the church.
Nearby, close to Hellingly, is the Zoar chapel.
