John E. Vigars Kent Church Photographs

Long since converted to a desirable residence, St Laurence's church is a mainly nineteenth century rebuild of a venerable church on the main approach road to Allington Castle. For much of its history a chapelry, rather than parish church, it must have witnessed many notable visitors, and being a remote building enjoyed its fair share of scandals - most notably in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as a venue for illegal marriages, conducted without the reading of banns.
