I was confirmed here many years ago by the then Archbishop of Canterbury . I was too young then to appreciate the beauty of this wonderful church. For those who are interested in old church graveyards this one is a revelation. If you are in Tenterden then pay this church a visit and you will not be disappointed.

The church was built in the late 1100s. We attended services on Sunday just to say we had been in a church that old. While the exterior is gray stone, the interior is beautiful.

Many services and activities here whilst the charming sister church, St John's at Smallhythe, is worth a visit whilst calling at the nearby Smallhythe Place.

Beautiful church in centre of Tenterden with a fabulous choir and a great peal of bells - Nelson's daughter was married to a Vicar of Tenterden, which is a beautiful small market town.

This church is lovely and has a wonderful feel about it. It has some interesting history and has a working Bell Tower.

This was Iden's village church. The churchyard had some interesting stones. The church itself was very picturisque. The church's interior was not as ornate as some, and there were not many stained glass windows. The church was light and airy and had a very peaceful air to it. It would have been useful if there had been a leaflet giving... More

A trip into past times. There is an old graveyard with interesting tomb stones, a church with impressive ceiling.

A lovely church with beautiful stained glass windows at both ends. The panelled ceiling is also stunning. Take a while to wander in the churchyard - it was peaceful and very pretty when we went with lots of primroses flowering amongst the graves. Very easy to get get to from the High Street. Well worth a visit.

If visiting Tenterden, its very worthwhile to check out St Mildred's Church. Beautiful stained glass windows. Also, if you can visit when the Tower is open and you can climb to the top, you get an awsome view all round.
