St. Thomas's Church is an unusual church. You may notice that it has fragments of ruin attached in various places. That is because the current building consists only of the chancel of the original 14th century building - it must have been huge!

It appears unusual inside in that it has a cruciform shape where the arms are relatively short and of equal length. It is as if one is standing in a square church.

The 13th Century Court Hall, Winchelsea, Rye, Sussex, England, Great Britain
Winchelsea, Rye, Sussex

The 13th Century Court Hall is the oldest building in Winchelsea although it was substantially restored in the 16th century.

It is now open to the public as a museum.

The Town Sign with the Court Hall in the background.

Opposite the sign to the left, on the other side of the road, is the 'New Inn'. We had lunch there and found the food to be very good indeed. If you're in the area and you need a place for lunch then the New Inn is the place to go!
