St Thomas the Martyr Church, Winchelsea
John Wesley was forced to preach outdoors in 1790 because he was excluded from the Anglican parish church here, as elsewhere. The Rector, Drake Hollingberry, is recorded as describing John Wesley as 'the Devil's own'.
Winchelsea also has a connection to the 19th century Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood of painters. John Millais used fields around the town as background for his painting The Blind Girl, and his painting The Random Shot depicts one of the tombs in the parish church.
Twentieth century comedian, Spike Milligan, is buried in the graveyard.
