Church of St Mary, Chiddingstone
Grade II* listed. LinkExternal link
A fire in 1624 prompted rebuilding of this 14th-century church over the next five years. Evidence of 13th-century lancet windows survives, and there was a church here in Saxon times. The ornately decorated tower is Perp. Internal fittings by George Edmund Street and Thomas Earp and stained glass by Charles Eamer Kempe are also of interest.
