Built under the patronage of the archbishops of Canterbury, St George is an exceptionally large parish church measuring 40.5m (133ft) in length, reflecting the prestige of the archbishops rather than the size of the parish, which has always been small. The beautifully carved 15th century choir stalls remain, and an octagonal Kentish rag stone font of the same period. Ivychurch has long been associated with smugglers, and legend has it that at times services could not be held because of the amount of contraband stored in the church.
