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.
