Church history [http://www.sussexparishchurches.org/content/view/414/33/+ Chichester St Pancras]<br>  
  
The church of ST. PANCRAS is without the walls of the city, at the north corner of Eastgate Square. The present church was built in 1750–51 on the site of an earlier church, partially demolished in 1642. It is constructed of flint with stone dressings in the style of the 15th century. It consists of a nave with recessed chancel and vestries, to which an aisle was added in the 19th century. The entrance is on the south or street side, the door being a 19th-century alteration. At the west end is a two-story tower, with an embattled parapet and a pyramidical slate roof with an iron weather-vane. The interior appears to have been entirely refitted in the latter part of the 19th century, and contains nothing remarkable. The only monument is to Sharp Garland, J.P., mayor of Chichester, 1906.<br>There is one bell, of 1750, in the tower. <br>The plate consists of a silver chalice and paten with hall-marks for 1750, the gift of Elizabeth Powlett of Halnaker, widow of William Powlett of St. Leonards Forest, in 1751. There is also an electro-plated flagon and cup.
