Cemetery notes and/or description:
There was a church on this site, close to the Roman Stone Street, at the time of Domesday Book, although the present building is 13th century. From the outside the church looks typical of the East Kent villages, built of flint with stone quoins; inside, the box pews have been rearranged, and the pulpit moved, to lay out the church in a non-conformist style. This was done in 1790, and has not been altered since, making St Mary's, according to the Kent Archaeological Society, "Kent's most extraordinary parish church". One of the yew trees in the churchyard is believed to be 1,500 years old.
