A 900-year-old Pilgrim church

On the Pilgrim's Way below the trees that crown the North Downs, this 900-year-old tiny building sits close to an eighteenth-century red-brick farmhouse and its barns. For centuries the pilgrims must have passed the church on their way to the Medway crossing from Snodland to Burham, but in 1678 it was abandoned and for 250 years was unused for religious purposes. It is made up of two simple rooms - a chancel and nave and it still has the aura of a Norman place of prayer.
