Ashurst, St Martin of Tours

Ancient Parish church.

Weatherboarded bellcote (roof frame to hang bells) with sandstone rubble walls. The south porch is dated 1621. Internally restored first in 1701 then said to have been totally restored by H.G. Curzon in 1865. But other sources give 1861 and the architect as Benjamin Ferry (1810-1880). Lord Sackville was the patron at the turn of the century.
