Interior of Slaugham church

This view of Slaugham church broadly shows the two halves of the open space at the east end of the building. From when it was built in about the 12th century until 1613 it comprised solely the space to the left of the large pillars, about one half the area that one sees today. In 1613 the Covert Chapel was built in the space beyond the pillars, but this was not wholly incorporated into the main body of the church until 1858 by the removal of the separating wall.
I notice that some form of carpeting in the aisle covers up the grating above the heating ducts, unlike later pictures.
The Large Version shows the itinerary of the visit of Bishop of Chichester to Slaugham and Handcross in 1930. The bishop was George Bell who served from 1929 until his death in 1958, aged 75.
