Chichester St Olave


The Parish

Chichester lies in southern Sussex close to the coast of the English Channel. It is one of the principal cities of the county, a Roman foundation dating back to the 3rd century and perhaps before that as a fort. St Olave's parish is a small part of the city which is divided into 9 parishes. St Olave's parish is located in the northern part of the city centre within the ancient walls. Whilst the city had a substantial population St Olave's parish was small with just over 200 parishioners.

The Church

St Olave's church is no longer used for worship being converted to a bookshop, tightly hemmed in by shops it also rather difficult to get satisfactory portrait & landscape pictures without replication. The building is also heavily restored which masks most of its architectural features. What can be seen is largely 13th or 4th century although the walls of the nave are clearly earlier and probably Norman.
