Set in a commanding position on the hillside above the town, Hythe Parish Church, dedicated to St Leonard, reflects Hythe's historical importance as a Cinque Port.
The north wall has blocked round-headed Norman windows, and there is a good Norman arch at the east end of the south aisle.
The chancel is 13th century, with additional work by Pearson in 1886.
St Leonard's is most well known for its ossuary, or bone hole, under the chancel which contains hundred of skulls. It is open to the public during the summer months.
