Bishopstone hamlet near Seaford, in East Sussex, used to be a manor for a bishop and the local parish church is believed to date from the 8th century. In fact, the building, dedicated to St Andrew, could well be the oldest church in the county of Sussex. A sundial in the church dates back to 685AD, etched with the name of the then-king of Kent, Eadric. Residents enjoy their community with a village hall hosting activities such as table tennis. Poet James Hurdis was born in Bishopstone.
Bishopstone is also rumoured to have been where St Leofwynn or Lewinna once lived, in the 7th century. She was around in the time of King Ecgberht of Kent and was martyred in 669AD by pagan countrymen. St Leofwynn was venerated in the Dark Ages because her relics were believed to create miracles. Her remains were taken to St Andrew's Church, probably in Bishopstone but possibly a namesake church in Alfriston, some 300 years after her death, where they were stolen by a monk called Balger for a monastery in Flanders.
