TR0266 : Harty Church

3 km from Uplees, Kent, Great Britain

Harty Church
Harty Church
This is Harty church. The hamlet that it served has long gone. The building is a real architectural treasure; built in 1089 it is substantially unchanged, although much of the wood has been replaced over the centuries. In recent times the tower has had to have many wooden pantiles replaced after repeated attacks by woodpeckers. One remarkable feature is that despite being only yards from a local 240v power distribution line the church has no electricity and is lit by wick oil lamps and candles.
