We were married at this church fifty years ago so we're pleased to find that very little has changed - it has retained a calm and tranquil atmosphere and is well worth a visit if you're interested
In ancient parish churches.

Very old church
May 2016
Fasinating place of worship - there has been a church on this site for 800 years.

The church is of an unusual design and has several memorials to naval officers dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Some of these are in the form of decorated wooden panels. The helpful lady (verger?) told us that these panels are called hatchments and were originally carried in processionat the funerals of the named persons.

She also mentioned that the church was also the home church of the Deal Piolts who assisted ships navigating through the hazrdous Goodwin Sands.

There is much to see, including a tomb dedicated to a close relative of Francis Drake.

Well worth visiting if you are in the area.

A Very Old Building
Aug 2015 • Couples
An old building it may be and from outside a little confusing as it has had extensions made to it over the years which do not really tie in with the original. However once inside the story changes and the old pews and lovely stained glass windows give it a special appearance. Well worth a visit.
