Newenden: St Peter's Church.
Newenden: St Peter's Church.
Newenden church was built around the end of the 14th century, possibly on the site of an earlier Saxon building. It was originally considerably larger but fell into disrepair. The chancel collapsed at the end of the 18th century, soon to be followed by the demolition of the tower, which had been at the north west end. A new clock tower was built in the 19th century, and the present small chancel was constructed in 1931. The clock was installed to commemorate the Coronation of George V in 1911. It is hand wound, with the hours being struck on the single bell which hangs in the tower, made at the London foundry of G.Mears in 1860.
