Old stairs to the rood loft in the church of St Cosmas and St Damian, Challock
The church of St Cosmas and St Damian is away down a lane to the south of the village of Challock and is actually in Eastwell Park. Despite its remoteness it was badly damaged by a flying bomb in 1944 and was nearly demolished. The church is most noted for the wall paintings from the second half of the 20th century. Some of them can be seen in this photograph. On this day the annual flower festival was being held over the Bank Holiday weekend and the theme was the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. This display has been placed on the stairs to the former rood loft.
