West Hoathly – St Dunstan

St Dunstan, West Hoathly, West sussex

A curiosity that continues to tell its unusual history through the unaltered front and the opened out interior. The building makes a positive contribution to the character of the conservation area as a vernacular building rather than as a church.  

A nineteenth century domestic building with a shopfront. The shop was last used as a butchers. It was acquired by a parishioner in 1957 and converted for use as a church, opening in 1958.  The conversion simply entailed the removal of internal walls and floors to create a single church space. An open timber structure supports the walls and roof. Externally all that tells the building is a church is the name and a crucifix.
