St Mary's Church - Cloisters Development

In 2006 the Parochial Church Council considered developments to support community life that centred on St Mary’s Church.  To achieve this, facilities such as a meeting room and social space, basic hospitality facilities, toilets, improved disabled access and additional storage, were planned for a new extension to the main church.
Construction works started in 2013 and in October 2015 the new extension was officially opened and consecrated by the Bishop of Rochester. 

The following photographs record the studies, preparation, groundwork, and the relocation of graves prior to construction of the Cloisters.
