Boxgrove, West Sussex
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Within the church is the grandiose chantry chapel of the powerful De la Warr family. The chapel is strangely empty, as the De la Warr's were actually buried at Broadwater rather than here in Boxgrove.
In 1993 a fascinating discovery was made by archaeologists excavating at a gravel pit outside Boxgrove. They found the thigh bone of an early humanoid being, who was nicknamed 'Boxgrove Man'.
