The Yew has been cut back since I last visited. Also you never want to cut through the Church Yard after dark, had a few odd happenings. I used to ring at this Church in the late 1970's early 80's got a lovely Tenor bell. Lots of memories for me as Chartham is my home village (born in Highstead but grew up at Chartham). Thank you for finally including it.

This church was built from 1285 until about 1305, the tower was added during the 1300ís and the whole is Grade I listed.
