St Margaret the Queen, Buxted
Built in around 1250 of sandstone in the Early English style, St Margaret’s church remains unaltered in the majority. The dedication in unusual as it is in the honour of the 11th century Queen of Scotland.
The porch area of the church is covered in initials and dates, but in the main is post-reformation. The weathering of the stones and the heavy use means that any earlier graffiti that may lie underneath has disappeared. There are a couple of interesting patterns made of crosses on the north side of a pier at the rear of the church and a possible petal shape found on the north door exterior.
