The damage
These photographs show some of the problems caused by the fire. It had spread rapidly in the void between the tiles and the wagon roof boarding, severely damaging the Chancel rafters. The Vestry roof joists were affected to a lesser degree, but the ceiling boarding and lead sheet covering were more damaged. Meanwhile, the combination of soot and fire-fighters' hose water had stained the Wealden sandstone walls, and smoke damage had affected the rest of the church.
