The remains of a Saxon and thirteenth century church built on the spot where King Ethelbert of Kent found Christianity soon after the arrival of St Augustine in AD597. Of a particular ground plan, it was, until its demolition in 1810, the best surviving remains of an early Saxon church in England. However the local incumbent felt it was too far away from the centre of population and built a new church further inland, reusing some stones and memorials.
