This county affords several specimens of Anglo-Norman ecclesiastical architecture. The following churches are noticed by Mr. Wilkins, in the twelfth volume of Archæologia: Westall; Cookley; Walpole ; Mettingham; Herringfleet; and Gisleham. In the same volume are engraved detailed specimens of various parts of those structures; geometrical plans, and sectional forms of the mouldings, &c.

+ Mr. Warton (Hist. of Kiddington, edit. 2nd p. 4. and note) presents some observations respecting this church which it may be desirable to transcribe ;-" The old Norman built parochial churches seldom consisted of more than one aisle, or pace. The most curious one with aisles that I recollect, I mean as complete in its first plan, although small, is the church of Steyning, Susser. The middle aisle has on each side four Norman round arches, zig-zagged, surmounted with as many round-headed small windows, The two side aisles are much, and disproportionately, lower, as was the custom. The roof is of rafter.” In the Beauties for Sussex, the church of Steyning is said to be in the Saron style. This is one of the numerous misrepresentations arising from the want of a clear and established Nomenclature of our ancient architecture,

This large and fine county contains numerous specimens of Anglo-Norman architecture; but the difficulty of compressing various particulars of in. formation into the comparatively small compass necessarily prescribed by the design of the “ Beauties of England,” has prevented the author from en. tering into minute architectural disquisitions.

The ecclesiastical architecture of WALES so closely assimilates, in progressive character and improvement, with that of England, that it scarcely requires separate notice in an endeavour to investigate the rise and history of the different styles of building observable in this island. On the subject of such an approximation, Sir Richard C. Hoare (our most judicious writer on the antiquities of this truly interesting principality) affords the subjoined comprehensive remarks:-“From the affinity of Eng. land to Wales, architecture seems to bave been nearly upon a level in each kingdon; fer as a particular species of this art rose up with us in England, imitations were very soon introduced into the neighbouring principality. This circumstance need not create much surprise, when we consider the near connexion that took place between the two countries, when our ancestors sojourned with the Welsh, we will not say, as absolute conquerors, but as authoritative visitors. Hence it becomes evident, how so great a similarity in architecture should prevail in both regions, though ever divided in private sentiments, if not in public professions ; for in Cambria we find the saine mode of design, the saine degrees of fue workmanship, the same decorative display, and the same good taste. Indeed, did we not know how the hearts of each peopled land were estranged by an original and deep-rooted hatred, we might, in considering the near-joined principle of art in each country, conclude, that in the pursuit of documents to illustrate this our architectural system, we traversed one and the same land."'*
