Cemetery notes and/or description:
Lower Hardres (pronounced 'Hards') is a small village lying just off the Roman Stone Street, near Canterbury. The church is at the bend of a narrow country lane, with little parking space, and fields on two sides. According to the Parish records there have been churches on the site at least since 1226; the current one dating from Victorian times. It replaced a building that had become dangerously dilapidated. One of the few surviving relics of the earlier churches is the font, dating from the early 13th century. The newer extension to the churchyard requires a scramble down the hill from the older part; stout footwear is suggested.
