9/99 Ruins of Midley Church

9.6.59 II

Ruins of Parish church. Medieval, probably C15. Thin coursed buff bricks
interspersed with single courses of uneven slabs of stone and flint.
Largely stone above level of doorway. Gable (probably west end), with
stumps of walls either side of doorway to west, and remains of north and
south return walls to east. Window opening with stone dressings,
splayed jambs to east and remains of possibly 4-centred arched hollow-
chamfered head. Doorway immediately beneath with stone dressings to east,
unsplayed jambs and remains of plain-chamfered, possibly 4-centred arched
head with upended brick voussoirs. Stone corbel carved with rounded head
in gable above centre of window. Midley was formerly a separate parish
which was incorporated into Old Romney in 1934. The church had fallen into
decay by 1573. The bricks are early and unusual. (M.H.L.G. Romney Marsh
Rural District, Provisional List of Buildings of Architectural or Historic
Interest, 1956).
