Visited yesterday, beautiful setting in the middle of Walland Marsh.  Well worth the trek. A few photos as many already posted here.

Thanks John V.  Very clear instructions, it is now on my list of places to visit - just got to wait for it to cool down a bit.  Thankyou very much.

You leave the A259 on a 90 degree bend about 1.5 miles west of Brookland. Its a turn to the right. If you come to another 90 degree bend you`ve gone too far. Follow the road for a couple of miles and you`ll see the church on the right. Drive past the church and the first house on the left `Becket`s Barn` has the key hanging on the wall next to the door. Just take it (no need to knock). Hope that helps.

There is a local house that holds the key for you to collect.  Not sure of the road name though.

Have been trying to find out if it is possible to visit this church, ie gain access. Also have tried to locate how to find it (by car)  I know it is in the middle of a field on Romney Marsh, and obviously from these photos on this old post I know that Kyn has visited it in the past.  Anyone have more up to date info. and also details of how to actually find it please.
