Here you go RWTA It seems the place only had a relatively short life.By it's alternative name my guess would be that it was one of the tin churches.

I stumbled across this on a map while looking for something else in the area.

Does anyone know anything about this church? I would imagine it may only have been a chapel of ease to Bearsted as Grove Green is now in the parish of. It appears to have sprung up early 20th Century and is gone between the 1950's and 1990. See map and aerial images.

First image 1897
Second image 1907-1923
Third aerial view 1946
Fourth 1929-1952
Fifth aerial 1990
