Ss Peter And Paul, Bilsington  Church

Image Source: John Vigar

 

Over the south door is a blocked round-headed window, a sure sign that this was a Norman nave, although the current chancel is a thirteenth century addition. The short tower is fifteenth century. The latter was never completed and was finished off with a timber belfry. The east windows are the result of the nineteenth century restoration and are somewhat shorter than if they had been original thirteenth century work. There is a fine Royal Arms of 1774 and a lovely reredos by Kruger Gay - rather reminiscent of the work of Ninian Comper.
