St Augustine Church, Brookland

This church presents a very different image from others on the Marsh because it has a detached 
wooden bell tower. The tower was built in the late 11th century as an open structure and was doubled in height to its present 60ft (18.3m) and clad with shingles in the 15th century.  The fine interior of the 13th century church has the highest box pews on the Marsh and a double-decker pulpit complete with sounding board. A mediaeval wall painting of the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket survives in the southeast chapel and a Norman lead font is still in use in the nave.
