St Mary's Church, Frittenden  Church

Image Source: Edwardian Postcard

 

The only church I have found where someones hand was buried in the wall during the nineteenth century rebuilding! Whether or not this local legend is true, Frittenden church is about as Victorian as a medieval church could be - so little of the original being left when Hussey was called in to rebuild. The best medieval survivor is undoubtedly the fifteenth century tower arch. Twenty years later the north aisle was added as a private pew for two of the large houses in the parish. The Moore family of Comenden Manor were the main benefactors and The East window by Bucknall and Comper represents Christ, St Edward and St Margaret and dates from 1891.
