St.John the Baptist Church.Smallhythe
Built of brick in 1516 after a large fire destroyed the whole village, Smallhythe church is a simple rectangular box, Its exterior height emphasised by the crow-stepped gables that rise in ten steps. The west wall has a little image niche under the gable. The interior is as plain as the exterior and has a wooden chancel screen and nicely tiled floor. Yet the church receives numerous visitors on the strength of its associations with Dame Ellen Terry, the actress, who lived at nearby Smallhythe Place which is open to the public. Without the fame of this former resident and the dedication of its congregation, this church might not have such an assured future.
Take care when retrieving the cache the road can be a very busy rat run at times.
If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
