View of The Street, Finglesham
There is a small disused chapel at Finglesham, but most unusually for a village of this size, there is no church. The absence of a church has given rise to the following expression.
'Married at Finglesham Church':- To have engaged in casual sex together.
Comment: "There is no church at Finglesham; but a chalk-pit celebrated for casual amours; of which kind of rencounters the saying is us'd." -- The Oxford Dictionary of English Proverbs, compiled by William George Smith (1935):
