More about this scene

Caption for Upper Beeding, Convent Of The Blessed Sacrament C1955: Upper Beeding is in effect a suburb of Bramber. It is mostly nondescript, apart from its parish church at the north end, overlooking the river. Until Henry VIII's Dissolution of the monasteries, this was the monks' church of Sele Priory, founded here by William de Braose in 1075. The Tower School is a quirky building, perhaps a counterpoint to Bramber Castle on the other side of the Adur. Dating from about 1880, it has corner towers with conical roofs and full machicolated battlements.
