The church pictured here is one of the oldest parish churches in Britain to remain in continuous use. It is thought to have been used by Queen Bertha, the Christian Queen of Kent, in the sixth century even before the arrival in England of St Augustine. The oldest part of the building is the chancel (the part in which ceremonies are officiated), although in the centuries following the Norman conquest there were many repairs and alterations.
