Houghton - St Nicholas 
Photo Tour 2002

This church is normally locked, but a chance visit  (18th July 2002) 
found it having some maintenance done to the outside.

Not the most interesting having been 'restored' in 1857 (i.e. rebuilt).
The Nave is of Knapped Flint the Chancel is Flint pebble

The quoins are mainly Pulborough sandstone, which does not weather well 
and show signs of repeated patching and repairs of varying standards.

The octagonal stone (Pulborough?) font is at the west end inside the single 13th C South Doorway. 
It is variously dated from 13th to 17th C. on a modern stone base. 

The registers are dated from 1560.
