Having acquired a few vintage cards of Sussex churches recently, I thought I would make a feature of them here. As I am not local to Sussex I don't know alot about the various areas but hope that the images alone will be of interest to you, the reader. All are for sale (at the time of writing) in my store.
The first image above is Battle Church, the card is not postally used - on the back someone has written that it is St Mary's Church.
Then off we go to Bexhill on Sea - St Peter's Church and Lychgate. (left)
This card was posted in 1929.
How about Hamsey Old Church (right)? This card dates back to the very early 1900s and was postally used in 1904. It is located near Lewes and is St Peter's Church.
The next one (left) is - Crowhurst Church and Yen Tree, near Bexhill... It's a nice card - not postally used but early 1900s again. The title says Yen Tree, but does it mean Yew Tree?
Here is Christ Church, Eastbourne - posted in 1904. It looks a very isolated spot doesn't it - I wonder if it has changed much in the last 106 years?
The one below is Holy Trinity Church, Worthing - this card was postally used in 1924.
The card below right is Heathfield Church; this was posted in 1906 and is one of my favourites - don't know why... just seems a lovely peaceful spot and appears quite rural... I don't know if that is still the case, but this postcard seems to give out that message to me.
A quick visit to Rottingdean Church next - not postally used but early 1900s again.
And the last church we travel to is Rye Church - this one is a 1905 Watercolour Art postcard, makes a different kind of image and very attractive. (pictured below)
