John E. Vigars Kent Church Photographs
Image Source: John Salmon
In a strange position, oddly isolated from the main road and pretty valley below. The church is a severe structure of Norman origin, over-restored in 1870 by Talbot Bury, whose work in Bath stone can only be described as unfortunate. The east window is by Martin Travers - Comper's pupil - but is not a good example of his work. However, the church contains fine good examples of Swiss glass comparable to the windows at Patrixbourne. Probably the best is the Flight into Egypt. One only wishes for more splashes of colour to enliven this otherwise plain church.
