Feature Sets

A former collegiate church in a small market town in East Kent. It has a tower of c. 1400 and a S aisle rebuilt in the late 16thc.

Many pieces of tooled Caen stone can be seen on the exterior of the tower, doubtless re-set, but only two are sculptural.


No record before the 13thc..


Exterior Features



The large block reset on the SE buttress of the tower is quite substantial for this context and could, perhaps, have originated from a large tympanum.
