HOD: St John the Evangelist

Groombridge

Sat 14th Sep

11.00 - 2.00 pm

The church, in Perpendicular Gothic style, was built in 1625 as a private chapel by John Packer, Clerk of the Privy Seal to Charles I.

When it ceased to be used for private worship in 1872, it was officially consecrated and dedicated to St John the Evangelist.

It contains a wealth of stained glass, including a window dating from 1625. Others are the work of 19th Century Sussex artist, Charles Eamer Kempe as well as examples by John Clayton and Alfred Bell.

Other notable features include one of the few remaining one handed clocks in England and interesting brasses.
