A rather beautiful and warm November day went to Brooklands to take some shots of this rather special Church. I first visited this little church vack in the 1990's when my daughter wanted to take some images of the bell tower for a school project. I had a play around and have uploaded a second image, hope you like them

Brookland is a compact village which lies on Walland Marsh about 12 miles South East of Tenterden on the A259.

Its church is well known on account of the fact that it has a detached wooden bell tower. The tower is octagonal, and has a conical roof of three diminishing 'flounces'. Until 1936 it was covered in black tarred weatherboarding. It is believed the tower was built around 1260, and so is contemporary with the church itself.

The church is dedicated to St Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury. On entering the church you will notice that the nave arcades lean outwards at a perilous angle. This occurred many years ago due to subsidence. There is still some settlement, and half an inch has been recorded since 1900.

The Royal Arms of George II hang over the south door, and on the south wall is a wall painting of Thomas a Beckett.
