St George Church, Ivychurch

Built under the patronage of the Archbishops of Canterbury, St. George’s is a substantial church 
measuring 133 ft (40.5m) in length, reflecting not the size of the population of the parish, but the prestige of the archbishops. Inside some beautifully carved 15th century choir stalls remain, and a grand Kentish rag stone font of the same period.  Smugglers’ tunnels are said to connect the church with the local pub, and legend has it that at times services could not be held because of contraband stored in the aisles and pulpit.
