St Peter's Bredhurst Kent

Hi all, this week Sue and I went to this lovely church in the middle of Bredhurst to take photos of it and have a look around.

The church was originally 11th century and was entirely rebuilt in the 18th century with the church reopening in 1867.

Unfortunately we went on Tuesday and the Church was locked but after a phone call we were invited back on the following day by the church warden to look around.

What a wonderful sight greeted us as we entered the church was very bright with modern lighting which was a joy to photograph. To the left is a glass screen that added light into the chapel next to the altar.

Looking back from the altar we admired the west triple window is the first of a set of sixteen stained glass windows dedicated to the benefactor of the church.

Entering the chapel to the right of the chancel with more of the sixteen windows.

More Lancet windows in the chapel.

Original 11or12 century Chancel window depicting the crossed keys of St Peter.

Outside with the gate leading to the new cemetery.

I could go on for hours about this church set in its own grounds and well worth a visit if in the area.

Thanks for looking, Mike
