St Clement Church, Old Romney

Originally constructed in the mid 12th century with just nave and chancel, the aisles were added in the 13th century.  The interior takes the visitor by surprise with its 18th century minstrels’ gallery and box pews, all painted pink! The latter transformation was carried out by Walt Disney Productions when making a film in 1963 based on the smuggling adventure Dr Syn, written by Russell Thorndike and set on Romney Marsh.  Film director Derek Jarman is buried in the churchyard.
