  Chancel - LoveToKnow 1911
In churches of the type that grew to its perfection in the middle ages the chancels are clearly differentiated from the nave by structural features: by the raising of the floor level, by the presence of a "chancel arch," and by a chancel or rood screen (see Rood).
In parish churches the screen was set, partly to differentiate the space occupied by the clergy from that reserved for the laity, partly to support the representation of the crucifixion known as the Rood.
In the Church of England, the duty of repairing the chancel falls upon the parson by custom, while the repair of the body of the church falls on the parishioners.

 The Chancel
Before restoration, the chancel was constructed of rough knapped flint work similar to that on the nave, with North and South external corner buttresses as well as intermediate buttresses between the lancet windows.
Interior photographs show that the chancel was originally divided from the nave by a segmental arch lower than the present one, which would indicate that it had been rebuilt at some point after the chancel was constructed.
To complete the rebuilding of the chancel, a new floor was constructed of plain and decorative acoustic tiles and during this work it was said a bottle was found containing documents relating to the church’s restoration after the storm in 1639.

 Church Architecture Glossary
In churches with a historic floor plan, the chancel is the front part of the church from which the service is conducted, as distinct from the nave, where the congregation sits.
In churches with a lecture-hall floor plan, the term sanctuary is often used to mean both chancel and nave because the two are not architecturally distinct.
The result was a space between the chancel and the nave that extends beyond the side walls, giving the church a cruciform floorplan—meaning that it is cross-shaped when viewed from the air.

 Chancel Repairs
For a detailed explanation of the history of the liability for chancel repairs, we can do no better than refer you, with the consent of the author, to the transcript of an excellent talk given by Derek Wellman, Registrar of the Diocese of Lincoln, to members of the Ecclesiastical Law Association on 8 April 2000.
Otherwise the result of not registering will be that the right to recover the cost of chancel repairs will be lost in the event of the transfer of the land after the ten year period to a purchaser without notice of the liability.
However, the liability for chancel repairs has always been what lawyers call “an overriding interest”, which means that it has not been necessary to protect such a right or interest by registration.
