St Clements Church, Hastings
St Clements Church, Hastings
Grade II listed. 14th C.
The site in the north east part of the Old Town was acquired in 1286 after an earlier church had been destroyed by the sea. A "hall church" like Winchelsea, it has flint and stone chequerwork in the walls and the aisles extend eastwards as chapels. Because of the fall in the ground, there is a sacristy beneath with a groined vault. Between the C16 and the early C19 the church was kept in good repair, despite a bombardment by the French in 1690.
Restored between 1872 and 1876. A lot of stained glass was blown out in 1943 by a bomb.
Church of St Clements
Built in 1380 after the French burning of 1377.
