News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Nice photo of the organ, which is listed as being built by Joseph Walker in 1847 and awarded an historic instrument certificate, Grade II, by the British Institute of Organ Studies. I believe it to be older, probably pre 1845. Has similarities to St. Bartholomew, Bobbing and  St. Peter and St. Paul, Lynsted.

The Church serves the Church of England Parish of The Brents and Davington.

The Curch was connected to the Benedictine Priory founded for 26 nuns. The Priory ceased to exist just before the Reformation but the Church itself continued through the Centuries.
