Hurstmonceux, or Hurstmonceaux, is a village in Sussex, five miles north of Pevensey. Many excursionists from Eastbourne and Hastings visit the ruins of the fine castle, built by Sir Roger de Fiennes, one of the heroes of Agincourt, which passed (1727) into the hands of the Hare family, and was dismantled about 1800. Archdeacon Hare (rector 1832-55) lies buried in the churchyard. The church, Early English, with Perpendicular windows, contains an altar-tomb of the second Lord Dacre.
