St Clement

Old Romney

St Clement was built in the mid 12th century with a nave and chancel and the aisles were added in 13th century by simply cutting through the thick Norman walls. The interior has a complete set of 18th century fittings including a gallery and box pews. However these are now painted pink following a request from a film company who came to Romney Marsh to make a film based on the smuggling adventure ‘Dr Syn’, written by Russell Thorndike. The film director Derek Jarman is buried in the churchyard.
