St Mary's Church, Capel-le-Ferne

This lovely church is remote from the road and squats snugly on bleak downland above Folkestone. It has views across the channel, looking towards France. A single Norman window, with a little delicate wallpainting in the reveal, indicates its early origins; but most notable is a 14th-century three-arched stone rood-screen with, uniquely in England, an arched opening above for the rood itself. There are also ancient roof timbers, a small brass and a 13th-century piscina.
