Entrancing stories are an integral part of each and every church. Find a moustachioed angel in one, a pirate in another and a handful in the Doomsday book!
There is much artwork to be admired too. All Saints Church in Tudeley has the Chagall stained glass windows commemorating a local family’s tragedy of the last century.
All Saints’ Church in Brenchley has unique exhibitions of artistic glory by Bell and the company Morris & Co in its stained glass windows too.
St Mary’s, Goudhurst, stands proud of the top of the steep windy hill offering stunning views. You can climb the squat tower on summer weekends and, on a good day you will be able to see approximately 23 miles to the south coast of Kent.
In Royal Tunbridge Wells, King Charles the Martyr was the making of respectability in the town and popular spa centre during the seventeenth century. Not to mention a place for Winnie the Pooh to sit! (Join a guided tour to learn more about this!)
You might be forgiven for thinking that Bayham Abbey as such a spectral ruin, is one of the oldest in the area, however, this honour belongs to the simplest church, St Martin of Tours in Ashurst, dating from between 921 and 927.
