This is the largest rural parish church in East Sussex.
This portrait of Rev. John Lord hangs in the Chancel. It is a contemporary dated likeness of this vicar who lived from 1614 - 1681 and who was the incumbent at Salehurst between 1640 and his death. The painter is unknown. The painting was presented to the church in 1937 and had previously been in the keeping of his family. Lord kept a copious diary during his Vicariate, which is preserved in the church, and apparently having royalist sympathies he was absent from the parish for three and a half years during the Civil War.
Here are two pictures off the interior, the first looking east into the chancel from the nave, the second looking back from the chancel into the nave.
Here is my favourite window in the church. The inscription reads " Life is eternal & love is immortal. Death is but a horizon & the horizon is but the limit of our sight."
Here is the east window.
And here, electronically straightened, is the west window under the tower; very hard to photograph!
Three more windows.
The inscription on the window below reads "To the glory of God and in memory of Robert Henry Burgess, for ?23? years a churchwarden of this parish, died September 29th 1903 and erected by his widow and children."
Here are the font and the organ.
