‪We were very lucky to visit on 3 days, all of which had great weather. So this lovely peaceful, pastural location has open vista of flat countryside, dissected by straight line drainage ditches, and low hedges. And characteristically sheep everywhere.
As to what it would be like to be here in mid- winter, I can only guess. This is a beautiful, almost timeless place‬

‪This is a strange church, set in a field to service a village, Fairfield, that no longer exists. There is a causeway through the drainage ditches which is the only safe way to reach it. The church was built of wood in the 13thC and encased in brick in the 18thC but the wooden roof etc remains intact and is wonderful. The interior is Georgian and very origional. The church is locked and the keys are available from the farm just along the road (Beckets Bran Farm). Well worth a diversion if you are in the area.‬

‪I was surprised how varied the scenery was given how flat the area is, tall hedgerows, plenty of trees and abundant streams/ditches create an excellent visual spectacle. Fairfield church accessible only on foot is a real iconic image.
Lots of good walking with plenty of quiet and solitude.‬

‪In June 2021 we approached the church by car and it's beauty and setting, among fields of sheep, took our breath away. Stopping to slowly admire this exquisite church and to take photographs isn't easy. The country road is narrow. The setting bucolic.

You can obtain a huge old key to go inside the church from a house opposite.

We passed it at all times of the day and in sun and rain. It was always awe inspiring. The proportions are just right. Dare we say it, romantic too!

We visited several ancient churches in the area but few were open.‬

‪Great walking and cycling routes, incredibly peaceful with ever changing scenery. Plenty of pubs and cafes on rambling and cycling routes so you can always grab a drink and bite to eat.‬

St Thomas à Becket Church in Fairfield is arguably the most iconic building on Romney Marsh. It is a beautiful structure that stands alone in a field, surrounded by watercourses and the ever present sheep.

Fairfield, the village it once served, has long since disappeared, but the church has survived and is now part of the civil parish which includes the villages of Brookland, Brenzett and Snargate. The church is dedicated to St Thomas à Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 until his murder in 1170.

The building dates back to the 13th century but, not surprisingly, had to be mainly rebuilt in the 18th century, when the entire timber building was encased within brick walls, and the roof covered with heavy red tiles. The interior is a simple delight, with interior timber-framing, and low timber arches stretching over the nave, while the congregation is catered for via bright white painted, boxed pews.

St Thomas is still an active church although services, I think, are only monthly. For obvious reasons re location and sheer beauty however, the church is also used frequently for weddings, and I couldn’t help picturing brides and bridesmaids making their way to the church from the road, and trying desperately to avoid treading in sheep poo on the way!

‪A beautiful place to walk and enjoy the sea air, wildlife and views.
On our visit there was a lot of work on the new visitor centre = which will be great when finished.
Only reason I couldn't rate it 5 was the plague that blights so many of these sites please dog walkers clear up behind your pets.‬

‪A really nice place to walk. Church in marsh was very interesting with its separate pews. Good for social distancing as we didn’t bump into any other walkers.‬

‪Having grown up just off the Romney Marsh I know the area very well. It has both negative, but interesting (think smugglers) and positive connotations and is of course world renowned for its unique sheep which can be found on the menus of some of the worlds top restaurants. There are certain aspects of it that see me returning time and time again to share this interesting place with friends.

Just on the edge of the Marsh there are the wonderful villages of Appledore and Stone both of which are essential pit stops if in the area.

Its proximity to European mainland has had strong influence on the area. There’s the Royal Military Canal which was built preempting Napoleon invading England. It has a zig zag pattern with a Martello Tower at each corner in which to place cannons to ward off any invaders!

Geek alert! The Romney Marsh has no less than 14 medieval churches which are equally magnificent and quirky. You can find the grave of “The Railway Children” author Edith Nesbit in Saint Mary the Virgin in the Marsh churchyard or see St Augustine's Church in Brookland where the spire/bell tower has been build next to it instead of on the actual church!

The real gem of the Romney March for me is St Thomas à Becket Church commonly known as Fairfield Church. It’s utterly unique and adds theatrics to any trip to the UK plus luckily is still quietly flying under the radar of the masses which is excellent. I love parking up at the near by house and telling my uninitiated guests to hop out and pick up the key hanging on the wall. It’s great fun seeing them tentatively doing so and being quite puzzled, then driving a little further to then hike across a field of sheep and get to the this gem of a church in the middle of nowhere, literally! Inside its layout is often a cause of intrigue. I love the tradition and I love it’s still going and has been treated with centuries worth of respect.

Greatstone Beach and Camber Sands are also part of the Romney March which is a wonderful sand beach perfect to either have a quintessential Great British Summer day by the beach or for a fabulous walk any time of the year.

You will find a large wind farm on the Marsh as well as the Nuclear Power Station at Dungeness. There are also two Military bases on the Marsh. Furthermore it’s worth reading up about the Cinque Ports of which Rye and Hythe both form part of. Plus I should not forget to mention the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Light Railwa i.e. the “Smallest Public Railway in the World”. You will also find a raft of ancient pubs to familiarise yourself with. If you Google Romney Marsh you will find there’s a surprisingly good website on the area.

Having explored the Romney Marsh there is but one place to go to next and that has to be one of the highlights of the UK: Rye.‬
