St Thomas Becket church used to have its own village that it served but that has long disappeared and it is now surrounded by Sheep and Cows.
The Church is dedicated to St Thomas á Becket, The Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 until he was murdered in 1170.
“Legend has it the the Archbishop was journeying through the dangerous Marshland that surrounds new Romney when he fell into one of its many ditches. He prayed to St Thomas, as he came up for breath a second time for a miracle to save him from a watery death. Just in time a local farmer spotted him and rescuded him so the Archbishop had St Thomas Becket church built as a sign of gratitude.
The Church still Holds services on the 1st Sunday of Every month and i would say its well worth the visit.
