Bognor Regis, West Sussex, St. Mary Magdalene at South Bersted. Previously in the "Unknown" section, my thanks to Phil Draper for the identification. From Steve Bulman's Collection. Link1. Link2. Another Bognor mystery was sent in by Peter Boyce who wanted to learn where this painting was produced. It's by R. O. Dunlop R.A. whose floruit was in the 1950's and 1960's. He lived near Chichester, and painted widely in Sussex and further afield in southern England. Colin Waters identified the painting on this website, and it is called "Old Street, Bognor". Unfortunately, there isn't a thoroughfare called Old Street in Bognor, so this is just a generic old street. In a fine piece of detective work, Tony Preston has also been looking into this church. He points out that the website included earlier in this entry also has an image of a page from a magazine, wherein the painting is shown, with the title Old Bognor Street, rather than Old Street, Bognor, supporting my assumption that Old Street as such doesn't exist. It also includes a hand-written date of 1956 for the painting. He has sent a link (here) to a website describing the church of St. John the Baptist, built in 1821, with a tower added circa 1834. The church itself was demolished 1891, but the tower was left standing until 1961 (i.e. after the painting was made). This link shows two postcards (scroll down) of Waterloo Gardens, both showing the church in the background, a good match for the painting. An old map shows St. John the Baptist's tower standing on Market Street, and comparing the painting with the map, I suspect that the view is from what was then Chapel Street, to the north of Market Street. Note that Chapel Street has since been re-routed from its original course. [Peter - the email address I have for you is invalid, so I hope you see this].

However, the RCAHMW entry says "built in 1820 and rebuilt 1888". It also says it was converted "by 1998". Howard Richter advises that the 1877 O.S. map doesn't show a building on the current site, though there is a smaller, un-named building a few yards away. By the 1899 map, this has been demolished, so it's a reasonable assumption that this was the 1820 chapel. It would have stood about where the yellow bush is in the photo. SS 9115 8394. All
