East Farleigh Church, other wise known as “The Ancient Parish Church of East Farleigh” is found at the top of farleigh hill opposite the Bull pub. It is about 3 miles outside of Maidstone in Kent. The churchyard sports lovely views of old farleigh bridge and the medway river winding through the valley below. The church has a steeple and appears to have been modernised in places, though is likely to have originally been built in the middle ages by the normans. A churchyard surrounds the church on all sides and is of a fairly large size. More info can be found at the east farleigh website .

Faversham is situated in the north of Kent, near Canterbury, and Faversham Church is unsurprisingly situated in the aforementioned town. Its a really lovely church, I didn’t get a chance to look inside because it was closed but from the outside it is very striking and sports a beautiful spire as shown in the photos. It doesn’t appear to be very old – maybe 1700’s – but the brickwork uses an unconventional material – maybe flint stone, i’m not sure – but it looks damn fine. Its probably stone from a local quarry but I could not find any confirmation of this. You may notice a mysterious bespectacled man in some of the pictures. This is my friend Austin and you may ignore him if you wish. 🙂 Begone Austin!
