Old St Helen's Church: Ore East Sussex

CBAS have been appointed by Sussex Heritage Trust to undertake a community excavation at Old St. Helen's Church, Ore as part of a larger Heritage Lottery Funded project to preserve and understand the ruins of this important church, which may have Norman or earlier origins. Volunteers from the Hastings Area Archaeological Research Group have worked with CBAS to record all the standing memorials and gravestones in the churchyard. A Community Excavation is planned for April 2012 when we will be excavating within the interior of the Nave and Chancel to try and establish whether any internal features survive, and to see if there is any evidence for the earliest church on the site. If you would like to volunteer for this excavation, please complete the application form and send it to or by post to the address on the form.
