Finally, after driving along the A27 for decades, often wondering about the chapel dominating the hill overlooking Shoreham, we paid a visit. It's a strange building, far too grand for a chapel, and yet somehow not grand enough. It deserves a tower, and although one...More

Really quite strange that this is a college Chapel; it is bigger than several British Cathedrals! Built as part of Lancing College in the late 19th century, it is a glorious piece of Victorian architecture but one that is in use a church every day....More

This is a seriously impressive Gothic structure that stands tall on the skyline and is visible for miles. Well worth making the effort to find the road in and the building is magnificent with wonderful stained glass and an imposing organ.
