The chapel, later church, of ST. PAUL was designed by J. B. Rebecca, and the interior was finished by Edward Hide of Worthing. It is of brick, partly stuccoed, having a Doric portico with four columns at the east end, with a bell-cupola behind it. As originally built the chancel was at the east end and there were galleries on all sides. There was a vestry by 1824. The chapel was reconstructed in 1893 when an Italianate chancel was added at the west end. A new vestry had been added by 1903. The rector of Broadwater gave the plate, of silver, in 1812 and his wife gave a piece in 1820; Edward Ogle gave the first organ. In 1894 the dean and chapter of Chichester presented a font, probably 15th-century, from the cathedral.

Prior to the 1911 census the household schedule was destroyed and only the enumerator's schedule survives.

The 1911 census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday 2 April 1911 and in addition to households and institutions such as prisons and workhouses, canal boats merchant ships and naval vessels it attempted to include homeless persons. The schedule was completed by an individual and for the first time both this record and the enumerator's schedule were preserved.
Two forms of boycott of the census by women are possible due to frustration at government failure to grant women the universal right to vote in parliamentary and local elections. The schedule either records a protest by failure to complete the form in respect of the women in the household or women are absent due to organisation of groups of women staying away from home for the whole night. Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search.
