"ST. MARY'S CHURCH - LENHAM" Chilham Off The Beaten Path Tip by balhannah

Chilham Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 5 photos

  St. Mary's Church @ Lenham
by balhannah

I had only just been to a St. Mary's Church in Chilham, when a few miles down the road, is another by the same name in Lenham.

This one is also a very old Church, dating back to 804AD, and has a Tomb inside dating back to 1471! Some of the Church was burnt down in an act of arson in 1297.
The Bell Tower was constructed the end of the 14th century, I don't know if the original was burnt down or they didn't have a Tower.
In the grounds are old graves and memorial's.

Located on Old Ashford Road, Lenham,
