Follow the brown signs
On the pathway of pilgrims
Standing peacefully under the Downs, on the pilgrims’ route to Canterbury, is this stocky flint-and-ragstone church with its stocky west tower.
It was deserted when the village moved to higher ground. St Mary’s is curious architecturally: north and south aisles were added to the original 12th-century structure and later pulled down, leaving clear evidence of its history.
The rustic, partially plastered interior is lovely and there are two ancient Norman fonts.
