St. Nicholas - Iford
TQ 408074;Two Miles South-West of Lewes
Iford Church Exterior
One of a series of churches in the Ouse Valley that is of great architectural interest. A linear church, of nave and chancel separated by a central tower which never benefited from the construction of transepts. The tower contains its original window openings.

Iford Church InteriorThe north nave wall has a series of blocked late Norman arches which formerly lead to a north aisle. They are visible on both exterior and interior walls. It has been suggested that the tower which is entered from the nave by a lovely Norman arch with roll and chevron moulding, was originally the chancel.

The chancel east wall has a group of three lancet windows of thirteenth century date with a round window, or 'oculus' above. The church contains a fine painted canvas Royal Arms of King George III and the altar hangings are part of the decorations of the Royal Box at the Coronation of Elizabeth II.
