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 twelfth-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.
