The church of St Laurence was founded in Saxon times, it’s towers, pierced with tiny round-headed windows, must have been built after the Norman Conquest.

Between the north aisle and the chapel that leads out of it, is an architectural rarity – an ornate Transitional arch – making the transition from Norman to early-English style.

Olive Brockwell the most famous of all nannies, who was immortalised as Alice by A.E.Milne (Changing guards at Buckingham Palace, Christopher Robin went down with Alice) was buried in Guestling. An inscription paid for by Christopher Milne (the original Christopher Robin) explains who she was.

From the churchyard there are wide-ranging views, south to Fairlight church, and east to the restored smock mill at Icklesham.
