Ss Peter And Paul, Shadoxhurst Church

Image Source: John Vigar


A memorable, tiny, well cared-for village church. Just a two cell structure (the west tower fell years ago) it has a lovely atmosphere. The chancel dates from the 13th century whilst the nave was rebuilt about a generation later, possibly just before the Black Death. The highlight has to be the memorial to Sir Charles Molloy, a naval commander who died in 1760, blazing with cannon and other paraphernalia! His funeral achievements are hung on the wall opposite an extremely late date for such things. There are fragments of medieval glass and a fine east window of 1923 by Albert Moore.
