Visit St Margaret's Halstead

In the dying breaths before the M25, the Kentish village of Halstead is home to the church of St Margaret, a pretty Victorian village church which replaces previous places of worship in the village dating back to at least the 13th Century, and almost certainly earlier.

The Victorian church we see today was built in the 19th century, when Halstead village began to expand with the the growth of the London fruit market, and the 13th century old church was pulled down in the 1880s, when the church we see today was built.

It makes a decent stop off on a walk from Knockholt Station, which is how your author visited. For more information, see http://www.halstead-church.org/a-history-st-margarets-geoffrey-kitchener
