Church of St James, Elmsted - Folkestone and Hythe

Parish church with origins in the C11, but of multiple subsequent phases. Good internal fittings, including a Norman font, medieval vestry screen and C17 pulpit. Although some repairs have been undertaken recently, including an overhaul of the roofs and internal redecoration, there are corroding rainwater goods, blocked hoppers and gullies, and vegetation growth.
