Interesting history. Typical country church worth visiting for reflection and prayer. The locals have added a guide around the graveyard mainly of plants. The dead didn't disturb the visit at all.

A lovely church in a pretty village. Take time to look at the history of the village. Nice cafe nearby and good pub down the hill. Chilham Castle good to look at although not often open.

The Parish Church is old and has lots of character. It is a very pretty place to walk around and see. Adds to the character of the town- where there are so many churches. Worth going around.
