Church Life

The Trust looks out for 14 medieval churches and 4 ruins on the Romney Marsh

Since being founded in 1982, over £1.5m has been raised and invested in the restoration of the churches of the Romney Marsh

Some restoration projects to highlight

Close-up view of the stonework of the West window at the church of Saint George, Ivychurch after restoration

Placed on Heritage England’s “At Risk” register, the 550 year old west window has required complete restoration. Such a restoration is an unprecedented undertaking within the Diocese of Canterbury.

A project to restore eight, mainly 18th century, tombs in the churchyard at St Augustine’s, Brookland is close to completion.

Essentially this work consists of re-tiling the complete south aisle, routing the rainwater drains away from the building and rebuilding the west window of the south aisle
