St Mary's Church Capel-le-Ferne
This church is remote from the road and squats snugly on bleak downland above Folkestone, looking towards France. A single Norman window, with a little contemporary wall painting 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 ancient roof timbers, a small brass and a 13th Century piscina.
