Reasons for trip

Tucked away in a small Kent village is an art lovers’ delight. The medieval village church, All Saints, was restored from the late 18th century.

In 1963, the daughter of the owner of a nearby mansion was drowned in a sailing accident. In her memory, her parents commissioned Marc Chagall to design a stained-glass window for the church. Chagall was so impressed with the church that he vowed to do them all. It took him more than 10 years to design them. In 1985 the last of the 12 windows were installed, just before Chagall’s death.

The windows are beautiful and contribute to the atmosphere of peace and spirituality in the church. They are at eye level, so you can see the detail.

Well worth a visit. It doesn’t take long to see them, but they’ll stay with you long after you’ve left.
