 This evening, I am posting information on Holy Trinity Church, Bosham, England.

The key features of this historic church are:

  • Has Saxon origins with lower stages of the tower and first third of chancel dating from this (Saxon) period.
  • Depiction in the Bayeux Tapestry because Harold, Earl of Wessex, had a home in the vicinity. In the Tapestry Harold is depicted entering the Church before his visit to Normandy in 1064.
  • South Aisle dates from 14th century.
  • Late 12th century Font.
  • The Tower: the first three stages dating from the Saxon period ( late 10th c to middle 11th c). Surviving Saxon features are: tower arch, triangular-headed doorway and round headed window higher still.
  • 11th century Chancel Arch.
