St Clements Panorama

St Clements Church in Old Romney, Romney Marsh, is one of the oldest churches in Kent originally constructed in the 12th Century although there is some evidence of an original structure on the site dating back to the 8th Century.

The church with the Georgian minstrels gallery and box pews retaining their rose pink colour was featured in the Doctor Syn film of 1962. Disney and the Rank Film Organisation repainted them in for the filming.

Derek Jarman is buried in the churchyard and is commemorated by a headstone simply bearing his signature.
