We chanced upon St Clements, having followed the water's edge along from the Bell Hotel. St Clements did not have a function on, instead it was empty, but had literature & signs outside inviting guests to enter and look around. Inside there was a few pews and tables set up, but for the most part the church was empty; and... More

Popped in as curious about the square tower in the centre of the church. Met by local who was looking after the church's visitors. He provided a popped history and told us why the tower was as it was. Interesting local church restored with heritage lottery money.

I have visited this pretty, full of character church many times. I have also had the privilege of singing here in the past with my choir. If you are in Sandwich and this church is open, pop in for a look around; it's lovely.

This delightful church is set in a wonderful and old churchyard and close to the centre of town. There were staff on site when I went yesterday and they were helpful and there were brochures available about the church too. There is a road with free parking (for an hour) behind the church and from this area you can walk... More

Sandwhich is a super little town and this church just adds to it. Quietly an unassuming this church is nestled in the corner off town. Free to visit, it has staff/volunteers on hand to hand out leaflets and chat with. They gave out a handy laminated leaflet that guides you round the church, pointing out explaining stuff. Not a church... More

A lot of history and very attractive to look around. Good to still be a working Church. Worth the walk to find it.

A lady welcomed us and gave us a very interesting guide to the church .We found particularly fascinating the history of the tower and how it had been strengthened and withstood the earthquake in the 1600s that destroyed the towers on the other 2 churches in the town.

Thank pambur
