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

St Nicholas, St Nicholas-at-Wade

This is a 12th century church, with the first rector, Adam de Brancestre, being recorded as starting in 1294.  One of the piscina’s in the church has a solid arched headstone, this is possibly from an earlier church that stood on the site of this one.

The church was enlarged in the mid-14th century after it became a parish church and a new tower was added at the same time.

Oak pulpit dated 1615
