St Martin, Aldington, Kent - 18th September 2005

The size of this church is something of a surprise as it is in a very sparsely populated area and is surrounded by farm buildings.  The church was under the personal patronage of successive archbishops of Canterbury in the 14th and 15th centuries - which explains the substantial additions to the 11th century building.

The tower is 16th century and was originally built as a separate structure and joined to the nave later.

The church was locked as is apparently only open on Wednesday mornings (apart from service times).
