The setting of St Mary's, Woodlands
The setting of St Mary's, Woodlands
Pevsner states it well: "At the furthest end of Knatts Valley in a position that is still amazingly remote, Talbot Bury built in 1851-2 what was to be the nucleus of a new parish of Woodlands, i.e. church, school and vicarage, all three with bell-gables, the school mimicking the shape of the church. Major Vincent, a surgeon at Guy's Hospital, paid for the church."

It is still remote and it is quite a surprise in these hills and valleys with their quiet lanes to suddenly come across the church and newly-restored hall next door. The church now comes under the parish of Kemsing. This view is from a footpath that heads south out of the valley to reach Cotman's Ash Lane.
