St Mary Magdalene Church, Wartling
St Mary Magdalene Church, Wartling
Grade I listed.
There was a chapel in existence before 1090 which was attached to the College of St Mary in the Castle in Hastings.
The earliest parts of the building date from the 13th century. Alterations in the 14th century started at the west end with the belfry now with a shingled broached spire. This originally stood on wooden posts which came down to the floor. One of these still remains.The weather vane is dated 1737.
There was once a gallery over the rear pews, but was later removed around 1870.
The north aisle was also added in the 14th century. At the east end of the aisle there is a War Memorial commemorating staff who were stationed at RAF Wartling, where a chain home station was situated.
The South Aisle is possibly 15th century although it is difficult to date as it has been altered. Externally there is a carving of a Pelham buckle and a Catherine wheel, possibly in memory of Catherine the daughter of Sir John Pelham, who died in 1459.
The box pews date from 1855. The chancel contains several memorials to the Curteis family.The north porch is modern.
The organ was installed in 1894 by Ingram of London.
