John E. Vigars Kent Church Photographs

An endearing little church tucked away from its village at the end of a lane. Originally Norman, it has a reset window in the north chancel wall, but really the character is given by the thirteenth century work given a lovely makeover in the 19th century. The south chapel, now a vestry, has some excellent lancet windows with rere-arches whilst good stained glass by Kempe may be found in the nave. The reredos, high Victorian work of the 1860s, has recently been uncovered and stuns with its complexity of colour. The flint walling may be a little harsh to some, but this is a tiny church not to be missed.
