Glynde St Mary


The Parish

The parish of Glynde lies in the south of East Sussex not too far from its English Channel coastline. Glynde is located about 3 miles east of the market town of Lewes and about a mile north of the A27 road which connects Lewes with Eastbourne. Glynde sits in a gap in the chalk downlands at the foot of steeply rising "Mount Caburn". At the time of this transcript Glynde would have been a farming community dominated by sheep rearing on the chalk hills supplemented by cattle in the valley bottom, nowadays it is more noted for the nearby opera house at Glyndebourne. The village of Glynde is rather linear spreading from the A27 up to the boundaries of the estate with the Lewes to Eastbourne rail line forming its notional centre. Glynde is quite a hub for communications as not only the A27, the rail line but also a canal connect the small village to the wider world. The canal replaces much of the small drainage channels which head westwards to reach the nearby River Ouse and the English Channel through Newhaven. Glynde is sited at little more than sea level although the chalk hills rise to almost 150 metres within a half mile. By East Sussex standards Glynde parish was a small one, it covered almost 1,400 acres and would have supported a population of just over 250 parishioners. There is no specific mention of Glynde in Domesday Book.

The Church

St Mary's church sits at the border of the estate of Glynde Place. The church is an 18th century replacement for the previous medieval building and is rather unusual for a parish church. The building certainly creates mixed feelings, Hussey in 1852 describing it as "in a very bad taste" although perhaps feelings have mellowed over the years. The small and squat oblong box is clearly no replacement for the mediaeval predecessor. Pevsner reserves judgment on the exterior but passes the comment that the interior would be "perfect" were it not for the screen & glass. The church sits on the east side of Lacy's Hill some 25 metres higher than the village and a lychgate grants access. The site is not compromised photographically in any way.
