Description: Built on land given to the Bishop of Selsey in 772AD by King Offa of Mercia, examples of Saxon stonework can still be found in St Peter’s Church. The tower, which was built by the Normans and still stands today, contains the ‘Bexhill Stone’ on its south side; this is an eighth or ninth century carved slab that was discovered in the nave. St Peter's was extended in the thirteenth century and is one of two churches in Bexhill that were recorded in the Domesday Book.
