This photo of a Kentish church shows that the Bell Tower is separate from the church itself. I think it is very unusual, and will be interested to hear of other exam-ples.

The member "gss" would be very interested in this. He is an architect and knows a lot about wooden buildings. This is a beautiful and most unusual structure. I would love to hear the history of it.

It certainly is most unusual, Ken, a very lovely scene and very nicely captured, despite the inconsiderately placed cones and rubbish bin! Sad That always seems to happen to me too...

Where is this tower located? I think it could be from some Norman origins ( a mixture of Stave churches from Norway and Norman architecture in France - as St Catherine church in Honfleur, Normandie) I wonder if it has a timber structure or only shingles covered.
But thanks for sharing this image, very interesting, and a good photo

iInternet search has revealed that - the church is situated at Brookland, in the Romney Marsh area of Kent. It was built c1260 and is famous for it's octagonal bell tower. The wooden structure was built separate from the stone church because it was felt that the marsh ground could not take the weight of both church and tower.
