As an avid taphopile I have visited hundreds of churches and graveyards and this one is in my top twenty. The graveyard is beautiful and full of interesting memorials and the church is breathtaking.

A huge church for a small town like Faversham, with large, wide transepts making the interior feel very open. Notable is the mediaeval painted pillar, the reputed tomb of King Stephen, some finely carved misericords, beautiful stained glass windows and the fascinating open spire.
