TR0736 : St Martin's Church, Aldington

taken 4 years ago, near to Aldington, Kent, Great Britain

St Martin's Church, Aldington
St Martin's Church, Aldington
The tower of St Martin's Church was under construction between c.1507-1547. The adjacent Court Lodge was originally an Archbishop's Palace of the Archbishops of Canterbury and includes a chapel of the late 14th century.
It was at the time that the tower was under construction that Elizabeth Barton, the Holy Maid of Kent, was employed as a servant at the Palace. She was eventually executed for treason by Henry VIII and hanged at Tyburn. She was buried at Greyfriars Church in Newgate Street but her head was put on a spike on London Bridge, the only woman in the history of the bridge to have that happen - see LinkExternal link
The church looked rather spooky on this dull afternoon.
