John E. Vigars Kent Church Photographs

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.
