Cemetery notes and/or description:
The parish church of All Saints, has survived remarkably well. The present building made of Kentish ragstone dates from the 13th century, making it early English in style. The side aisles were added in the 14th and 15th centuries.
The tower houses 6 bells, which were cast in the early 17th century by Joseph Hatch of Ulcombe, three of these bells are still in use.
The tower is supported by four very large buttresses, most likely these are of a later date, when subsidence was noticed.
A most unusual feature of the church is the human head sculptures, eleven of which can be found carved at the end of arches, seven inside the church and four outside. This feature can also be found in a number of churches on the Romney Marshes, and are believed to date from the 13th century, it is likely that the sculptures were made by the same master craftsman.
The church also holds a most unusual brass on the pulpit floor, it is believed to be the third oldest in Kent. It is in memory of the rector Nicholas de Gore from the early 1300's. (text by darealjolo)
