St. Peter's Church, Upper Beeding

Upper Beeding’s St. Peter’s Church is also known as the “Sele Priory Church”, and was for many centuries a Benedictine Priory.

The Parish of Beeding & Bramber with Botolphs (Church of England). It was almost completely demolished and rebuilt in 1307 – 1308. The church was an early part of Tractarianism, and under the influence of the Oxford Movement it has long stood in the “country catholic” tradition.


DBR Southern carried out extensive masonry work to the tower including reconstruction of the masonry parapets, repointing the facades in lime mortar. DBR Leadwork participated in the project with roof repairs in lead and Horsham stone. 

Specific works incorporated dismantling and rebuilding of masonry parapets, reduction of gutter depths to allow safe maintenance of roofline rainwater goods, extensive repointing to the tower façade in Lime based mortar and localised stone indents.
