OS 6" map (1946)

For (successor and present) Parish Church (NX 92734 57373), see NX95NW 23.

The original church appears to have been dedicated to 'Our Lady of Southwick' in the 13th c., but the existing fragment has been much altered, if not rebuilt, in post-Reformation times.

The remains are oblong in plan, measuring 62'6" by 26'3" over walls from 3'3" to 4' thick and about 12' in height. There are rough openings in the north wall; and the east half of the south wall has been demolished.

RCAHMS 1914, visited 1911

The fragmentary remains of this church are generally as described above. There are modern breaks at the west end of each lateral wall.

Visited by OS (JTT) 10 August 1965.
