A Thomas À Becket connection

Becket himself is said to have preached in this small Norman Wealden church. The tower was partly rebuilt after a fire in 1639. Inside, the crown-post roof is striking and there are some interesting fittings. Most significant however, are the extensive medieval wallpaintings which cover most of the nave, depicting amongst others Cain and Abel and Christ's entry into Jerusalem.
