Church / Chapel

Lancing College Chapel dominates the landscape to the north of the A27 and across the Adur Valley.

It was founded in 1868 and dedicated in 1911. It is a stunning example of Gothic revival and has a nave reaching over 90ft to the apex of the vault. The Rose Window has over 30,000 pieces of stained glass, it has a 32 ft diameter and is one of the largest in England. It was dedicated by Archbishop Coggan in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales in 1978. In May 2007 Archbishop Desmond Tutu dedicated a stained glass window in memory of Bishop Trevor Huddleston, a pupil at Lancing in the late 1920s. Internal features include the stall canopies, the brass lectern, bronze candlesticks and fine tapestries. There are two organs - the 4-manual Walker organ and the 2-manual Frobenius organ.

Lancing College was founded in 1848 by Nathaniel Woodard. It was the first of several schools he established as part of the Woodard Corporation and is today an independent co-educational secondary school.

The chapel is open to visitors from 10:00-16:00 Monday to Saturday and from 12:00-16:00 on Sundays. Groups of visitors who would like a guided tour should contact the Verger, Mr Andrew Howat, in advance, on 01273 465949, or email
