St Nicolas, Portslade
St Nicholas' church is one of the oldest in the Brighton & Hove and has been consistently used for worship throughout its 850 year history. The building is fairly large and consists of a nave of three bays with north and south aisles, a chancel with modern north vestry, and a western tower. The north aisle of the nave is modern, but the nave and south aisle are of the late 12th century, the chancel and the upper stages of the west tower being rather later.
A large amount of graffiti was found within the church, a few of more interesting pictured below. There was a large compass circle consisting of three concentric circles found on a pier in the south aisle. On the internal frame of the south porch were two examples of punch holes and line patterns, both forming the shape of a cross. On one of the Victorian build piers in the north aisle is a sweet little caricature.
