It is a lovely drive... More

This is a nice stone built church on the way to Harty Ferry Inn. Worth taking time out for a look. Nice area very peaceful.

The church is a slice of history and is well worth a visit. The Harty Ferry Inn is even more remote and seems to open as and when it likes. The food there in neither good or cheap

This could just be the perfect destination for a day out. Once through the hustle & bustle of Sheppey's poor road system you turn towards peace & tranquility. Keep your eyes peeled for the turnoff though as it can be difficult to find. Once found, it's a lovely drive through fields swarming with birdlife to arrive at one of England's... More

Beautiful ancient church in an unrivalled setting overlooking the River Swale across to Whitstable on the mainland. The ancient wooden chest is now restored to its rightful place after being stolen several years ago. Whilst fairly remote, it is certainly worth making the effort to visit.

Stumbled across this church a couple of years ago. No electricity, gas or water! So calming both inside and out. Loved it so much we got married there. Well worth a visit no matter how young or old you are.

I have been visiting the area for the past 10+ years as I have a holoday home in Lyesdown. My partner had read about the church so we decided to visit. It is an interesting place and inside you can feel the history. The benches at the rear of the church have a great view over the Swale and the... More
