Just to illustrate the museum in the north aisle.

Its a great little museum set within an absolutely fantastic church with a very chequered past. Worth a visit if nearby, or even worth a separate journey and take in a couple of the other 'Marsh' churches, both standing and ruined?

Thank you CAT! It just seemed a bit odd having a piece of farming equipment on display in a church :)

There is a small rural museum set up in the north aisle with farming equipment from the last century or so, mainly donated by a local farmer.

Do you have any idea what the chain harrow is doing in a church? (shown in your last picture).

Had a visit here today, after Fairfield and Old Romney churches, which are small and with box pews, this church felt massive!

It is alleged that the N Aisle is uneven as horses where stabled there during the Civil War (like a good many other churches - they can't all have been surely!)
