St Margaret, Ifield, Kent - 13th September 2008

A view of this very small church as it is approached from the road.

A view of the compact interior.

The rather garish east window.

The side windows of the chancel.  The 1972 Jane Miskin window is quite lovely.

This monument to Beatrice Stanley (d. 1902) is mounted on the south side of the chancel opening (there is no arch).

The nave window is very attractive, having been erected in 1922 in memory of Stuart WIlliam Wistin of Ifield Court.  It is such a shame that it is necessary to protect windows with metal grilles - it really does have a negative impact on their appearance from both outside and inside the church.

The pipe organ is situated on the western gallery, although it was sad to hear it is seldom used these days - the modern replacement being a CD player, clearly kept on the organ bench!

The font has a modern cover.

The exterior of the church is rather marred by the gravel rendering - the eastern elevation is particularly badly affected.

However there are a few signs of its history still visible, for example the blocked low side window in the south side of the chancel.

Here is a final view of this charming building from the south west.
