Other Information

  • With a 52 metre tall broach spire, St Peter and St Saviour is an extravagantly decorated Italianate Gothic Revival church constructed as the centrepiece of the Duke of Devonshire's new town in Eastbourne.
  • The colourful mosiacs are designed around the theme of the eucharist, an idea that was experiencing a great revival in England thanks to the Oxford Movement.
  • Although the Victorian interior has largely survived, unfortunately most of the stained glass was destroyed during World War 2 by German bombers.
