History and Architecture

St Mark's is the oldest church in the area. It was built in 1852 (mainly by public subscription), with various Victorian additions and
alterations. A Grade 2 listed Victorian parish church built of Kentish
ragstone with a slate roof, St Mark's is noted for its
170-year history, and its long and continuing history of
service to its local community.

The building is particularly noted for its stained glass,
the unique Royal Doulton tiling beyond the altar, the
baptistry and the murals on its walls.
