Description

Many of the churches in Kent are known for their yew trees but St. John the Baptist at Barham is noteworthy for its magnificent beech trees. There is believed to have been a Church here since the 9th Century but the present structure was probably started in the 12th Century. Many of the huge roof beams, ties and posts are original 14th Century as are the three arches leading into the aisle. Of interest to genealogists is the fact that, particularly during the time of the Napoleonic Wars, the Church was frequently used for the marriages and baptisms of the troops that were in the camps on the Barham Downs. There is also an annex to the church with additional internments a short distance along Church Lane. The Churchyard has many still readable monuments and headstones. Sadly a large number have been cleared and placed around the edges of the Church walls.
