Ruins of Church of St Mary, Pluckley Road, Little Chart - Ashford

Possibly C13 church with tower built around 1500. Damaged during WWII by a VI flying bomb. Now ruinous but with tower still standing to c.15m. High level stonework requires inspection, and the considerable growth of ivy and other vegetation needs controlling. The grounds are well maintained and the site is open to the public. Vegetation clearance has been discussed with the owners.
