Eastbourne Road, Polegate, East Sussex (served from Hailsham)
A simple and unexceptional building, though in the local context it is of some merit, being constructed of local flint and standing on an eminence above the road. It is a pity the design is quite so plain. One wonders if more was intended.
The church of St George’s is a simple gabled building of 1938, in flint with stone dressings. Nave and sanctuary under a single roof and rectangular plan. Gabled south porch oddly projecting westward beyond the nave. Regular flat-arched windows of four four-centred-arched lights except the east and west windows which have more elaborate Gothic tracery, though still simple and stylised. The interior has a canted ceiling over the single space. Reference has been made to the architect being a Mr Hughes. Could this be J O’Hanlon Hughes, the architect of St Thomas More Seaford built in 1935?
