A flint-built Grade I listed church, one of only three apsidal ended medieval churches in Sussex.

VIHARA BUILDING, WEST SUSSEX
The new Vihara building extends facilities at a West Sussex based Monastery, providing for a range of activities and a quiet withdrawal or refuge space. The design aim was to integrate well with the other monastery buildings and their overall layout, linked by cloisters around enclosed garden areas, using the same oak frame carpentry building method.
