All the references I've seen to it refer to it as Midley.

Looking at your pictures that you have posted I was interested in the name "Midley".I worked in Lydd for a few years and not heard of the name.All the locals reffered to it as the ruins in Dennes Lane.As anamateur photographer I have been trying to find the name of the church so that I may caption my photos correctly.Perhaps somebody can name it.Alan.

Dear kyn,please keep logging these,as you may know,i am on the committee of restore rochester castle campaign,but it does not end there,we are growing strong from day to day and care about all properties of historic value for future reference,it is apalling that our heritage is being neglected so,when canterbury was bombed during ww 2,some idiot/idiots got in local power and had so much of our history flattened,although we are not at war at present,the mentality of those in charge still think the same!,all these properties belong to the people,not authorities,therefore it is down to the people of britain  to stand up and have there say,should they want their heritage to survive,for their children,grandchildren,and future generations to cherish and learn from.It only takes a pledge from the heart!

Sounds like a great idea, although very time consuming  :)

I did think maybe cycling out to them all with my Brother when i lived in Gillingham but changed my mind  :D

Some nice pics there, is it your intention to visit all the churches in Kent?

Hi Kyn,

Thats kinda what I committed myself to! having realised how huge that undertaking is I have refined it somewhat in that it only includes Anglican Churches up to the Victorian Era. Thats enough - although that does also include those now in private hands, redundant, ruinous or part of another premise. I have also included the old Kent Boundary so this extends all the way into Greater London so Sidcup, Bexley, Erith etc.

Therefore I have a n
umber of ruins, and some of churches you would never get into unless you have half a clue who owns it or have plead with the current inhabitants, some kind people showed me round their home in a converted church the other week so the collection is building. Currently stands at just short of 380.
