Description

A lovely atmospheric church, dating in the main from the thirteenth century. Lancet windows abound (many with rere-arches, a sign of wealth) although the later Perpendicular windows vie for attention. The tall west tower with spire is a beacon to the new dual carriageway whose motors mean that the church is now never silent - but as long as the road acts as a barrier to the further growth of Ashford the church will continue to stand aloof on its windy hill. Inside there is no chancel arch and one is struck by the narrowness of the south aisle - little more than a corridor leading to a charming chapel. Nineteenth century texts cover every arch, even the low one between chapel and chancel! There is a very simple sedilia and piscina in the chancel and the east window is formed of a pair of lancets - very different to the standard `group of three` for which this part of Kent is famous. Nineteenth century glass comes from Jones and Willis and C Evans of London (1882) but there are also some lovely jumbles of medieval fragments. Apparently they do not belong here but were given in 1880.A large Royal Arms is fixed toa tie beam in the traditional location. All in all a church worth going a long way to visit - but you will need to get the key.
