Church of St Peter, Church Road, Oare - Swale

A small and predominantly Perpendicular church, much restored by Joseph Clarke in 1868. The church has serious structural movement at its east end, which is slipping down a steep bank towards Oare Creek. Disturbance to the flooring and serious cracking to the walls at the east end are the main evidence of this movement.
