EXHIBITION

Inspired by seeing satellite images from space in the documentary Planet Earth, Penny Graham embarked upon a different kind of work using Raku, a Japanese method of pottery making. Highlighting the organic pattern and vivid colours, these glazed bowls represent her creative work and love for the planet. Please note: there are no facilities at this church.

History

St Clement in Old Romney is a Church of England parish church and one of the oldest churches in Kent. It was originally constructed in the 12th century although there is some evidence of an original structure on the site dating back to the 8th century. One of the most-visited Marsh churches, built on an artificial mound to protect it from the floodwaters. There is a Norman nave enlarged by the addition of aisles in the thirteenth century. Because of its virtually unrestored state it has many items of interest, the uneven floor creating a very rural atmosphere. The two hagioscopes to either side of the chancel arch are unusually large and are little more than holes knocked into the wall. The rood loft staircase, discovered in the 1920's, still has its medieval door frame - a rare survival indeed. In the north chapel is the mensa medieval altar. The delightful altar rails are early eighteenth century and present a run of very close-set balusters. The box pews and gallery are of later eigtheenth century date and were repainted for the Rank film 'Dr Syn'. The large Royal Arms of George III are dated 1800 - the lion has a particularly smug expression!
