The Archaeology and Heritage Group in conjunction with the South East region are organising a photowalk in the area of Romney Marsh, where we will have an opportunity to photograph ancient churches and see how the flora and fauna shape the landscape creating a heritage unique to this part of the world.

10 for 10.30 meet outside Miss Mollett's Teahouse, Appledore TN26 2BX (it will probably be closed, but it is a good meeting point. Parking on road, but limited spaces. There is a free carpark north of the village) - drive to Fairfield.


10.45 St Thomas a Becket church  TN29 9RZ. Parking on narrow road, limited but possible (if you don't mind walking a little bit). Wear waterproof shoes, footpaths may be muddy. (spend 1 hour) drive to Brooklands.


11.45 St Augustine's Church TN29 9QP - arrive 12.00. This church is in the village. Parking available for patrons at the pub next door, where we will have lunch (optional) (spend 30 min)


12.30 Lunch at the Royal Oak (or if own arrangements, you may bring packed lunches and eat near the church, spend max 1 hour).  - drive to Old Romney

13.30 St Clement's Church TN29 0HP (spend around 30 minutes). Parking near the church (narrow roads)


14.15 Ruins of Midley church (spend 1 hour). Parking on very narrow road, very limited. There's a 10 min walk to the ruins, going through fields, so bring comfortable, waterproof shoes.


15.00/ 15.30 end of outing (optional: drive on to Dungeness, about 15 minutes away)



- Bring warm, comfortable clothing, waterproof shoes or wellies, particularly for Fairfield and - Midley, which are located in the middle of fields - prone to flooding.


- The area has narrow roads and sometimes it is difficult to park - we may need to car-share from Appledore.


- The venues we will be visiting are not suitable for wheelchair access. There is a certain amount of walking involved, on uneven, muddy fields. There are animals in the area (sheep, dogs and cattle).


- Some restoration work may be in progress.


- We may need to change the itinerary, depending on weather or other circumstances. Call the organiser if you have any problems.
