Tuesday April 6th (2021) hamsey church
The ancient Church of St Peter, Hamsey stands on its hillock in a curve of the river Ouse, just north of Lewes. It served as the parish church from before the Norman conquest in 1066 and part of the church was certainly standing at the beginning of the second millennium. In 925 King Athelstan had a meeting of his counsellors here and the Domesday survey of 1086 not only gives details of the manor, but adds “there was a Church”. In 1321 a large manor house was built to the east of the church in the area now occupied by the graveyard. Traces of this building were still visible in 1777.
