Church Ruins, Midley, Romney Marsh, Kent - 21st July 2005

This picturesque ruin is situated in a lonely location, some distance from the road.  A short walk is repaid by the remains of the western and fragments of the north and south walls of mainly 15th century work.  The west door and window above are the main features of what is left.

The building was almost certainly deserted by the 16th century.

Midley represents the surviving remains of the church of the "Middle Isle" between Lydd and Romney.
