Plaxtol Parish Church

Plaxtol Parish Church can be reached on the Plaxtol to Tonbridge walk. The Church was open for visitors and supplied plastic overshoes for visitors with muddy boots. The Church was built in 1649 in the time of Cromwell and consequently does not have as much decoration as some churches, however it does have a special beauty in it’s simplicity.
