H L Willis is commemorated on the Margate War Memorial

A short history of his service is here (page 21)

The churchyard has been tidied and a relatively modern headstone exposed.

Pic 1  The church appears to have gained a window? A window was added to the east of the Porch in 1905.

Pic 2  The late mediaeval west door surrounded by a Norman 12th century arch.

There was a fair few buildings when I walked through there a few summers ago...

I think its been gone a while, it was called Moor Farm and was further round the other track from the isolation hospital back towards the Conyer road.

In the 1901 census members of my family worked the land to the right of the road to the church. The farm is no longer there but the remains of the buildings lay on top of the soil where they are ploughed up.

Is Luddenham near Faversham....the old eerie old hamlet where no one lives but some farm buildings are used?

So that's where the old Burham church altar went :)

That tortoise stove reminds me of the one's they've got at St. Mary's, Higham.

Crudely added near the Altar is this piscina


This Victorian tortoise stove was once the cause of a fire when the iron chimney grew too hot and set the roof alight.  Luckily the men from the nearby farm managed to get enough water from a nearby stream they could put the fire out before too much damage was caused.


Victorian font


This stone coffin lid is believed to have been brought from the nearby remains of Stone Chapel


Victorian altar from St Mary, Burham


The lack of electricity in this church means candles and oil lamps can be found spread around
