John E. Vigars Kent Church Photographs

If you like, a cross between St Barnabas and St George, and about the same date as both. Apsidal chancel but more successful than St George in that it is plain at lower levels to emphasise the importance of the altar. Lighter than St Barnabas by the use of huge Decorated windows. A big difference was in the use of stencilled decoration on the walls of the church, leaving selected areas of brick bare. The church was gutted by fire in 1993 and was remodelled on entirely different lines within the existing walls. The former chancel is now a `Sacred Space` garden.
