30th Anniversary Celebrations

Sunday the 19th May from 3:00 pm

The Church on the hill, All Saints’ Church Staplehurst Kent, stands in the center of the village atop a hill.

The Church is at the south end of the village just a short walk off the A229, a Roman road that forms the main high street. It dates from the early part of the last Millennium; the south door has been dated to around 1050 and displays some very fine early ironwork on it.

They say that the church was built around 1100. It served the farms which evolved from dens or pasture land used by herdsmen from the area around Maidstone. It is older than the village.

The Anglo-Saxon charters mention specific dens Spilsill and Aydhurst, while the name Staplehurst was first recorded in 1226.

All Saints’ Church Staplehurst – Tower Turret Appeal

We have launched an appeal to restore the turret on top of the tower. Much of the stone around the Turret door is flaking and the lintel above the door is broken. The door frame has been strengthened temporarily with a secondary frame to ensure the stability of the turret, but the lintel and the stone of the jambs need to be replaced urgently.
