St Andrews Church, Fairlight, East Sussex was consecrated in 1846 and built on the site of a 12c. Norman Church.
The building is of local sandstone and the interior is of Caen stone.
A feature of the nave is its steep roof forming an equilateral triangle.
Victorian stained glass fills windows in the chancel and nave.
The tower, the second highest point in East Sussex, gives a panoramic view and is open every weekend and bank holidays from May to September, as well as Friday afternoons during August.
Visitors may ring the bells by means of a ‘carillon’ keyboard.
The churchyard contains graves of interest and is still in use.
