St. Clements Church (Sandwich)

St. Clement's is one of three mediaeval churches still standing in the outstanding little town of Sandwich in Kent.

The other two are St. Mary's Church and St. Peter's Church.

St. Clement's is in Knightrider Street, at the end of a delightful Georgian terrace.

The tower is Norman, and has three tiers of arcading. Also Norman is the crossing, and the doorway to the belfry stairs. This has a tympanum with a figure of a tiny stag.

There were formerly transepts, but these spaces are now taken up by wide aisles. In this area is a mediaeval statue of St. John, made of terracotta.

The font dates from about 1400. It is octagonal, and has statue niches and Tudor roses.
