Church of St Mary

I


Chancel, nave with aisles and tower in the centre of the south aisle, its ground
floor forming a porch, with a broached shingled spire above it. Knapped flint.
Rare and good east wheel window with cylindrical spokes. The chancel, the
nave, the tower and the south aisle to the west of the tower are late C12
(the spire (Cl3) and contain an especially fine Norman south doorway and a
good Norman priests' doorway. But they were rather drastically restored at
the expense of the first Marchioness Conyngham, the chancel in 1849 (architect
Mr Marshall of Canterbury) the nave, tower and aisle in 1857 (architect Sir
George Gilbert Scott). The east end of the south aisle (the Bifrons Chapel)
was rebuilt in the Cl5. The north aisle was added in 1824. Some of the windows
have C16 and Cl7 Swiss glass given to the church by Lady Conyngham in 1837.
Body stones in the churchyard.
