On Thursday 19th September Friends had a coach trip to St Mary & St Blaise, Boxgrove and Chichester Cathedral.
The Priory church at Boxgrove was part of a Benedictine Priory until the Reformation. Some of the Priory is now in ruins but the original eastern quire, the original monastic church, is now the parish church and has a richly painted nave ceiling and glorious 16th century chantry chapel.
After our visit, we moved onto Chichester for lunch followed by a tour of the Cathedral. Chichester Cathedral has much to offer including 38 medieval misericords, John Piper tapestries, Chagall window and Graham Sutherland painting and the pennant from the boat in which Sir Francis Chichester circumnavigated the world.
