Summary Description

The large Gothic pebble-faced stone church of St Barnabas is set on a minor street corner on Sea Road a short distance back from Bexhill’s pebble beach front, just south of the hill on which stands the historic old town with the medieval parish church of St Peter and the ruins of the Bishop’s residence. The church is designed in the early Gothic style of c 1300, generally in the lancet style but with use of Free Gothic tracery. There are prominent stepped gabled buttresses which provide punctuation to the various parts of the composition.
