Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Walberton, West Sussex
The Church's Norman origins are now mostly hidden beneath the restorations of the 18th century, but there are some parts of the walls that are constructed of rubble and stones salvaged from derelict Roman buildings nearby. Since its construction the church has almost constantly undergone necessary repairs and alteration. In the 19th century, the porch, chancel, belfry and the relatively new gallery were all altered, and the Saxon-era west entrance door was blocked. Despite all this work, yet more repairs were needed by the start of the 20th century. The nave was in danger of collapse, possibly because of the earlier work on the belfry, which had some of its supporting timberwork removed. This weatherboard clad belfry contains a peal of six bells. Three of which were cast in the 16th-18th centuries and the other three were added in 1903.
