See St John the Baptist, Eltham

A pretty church at the centre of what was once a leafy village, St John the Baptist church in Eltham is thought to have a history going back 900 years, though the modern version dates from 1879, following the demolition of the earlier version.

One of the first records of the Eltham's existence has been found in the records Rochester Cathedral, which show Chrysom Oil, used in Baptisms, was brought to Eltham from the cathedral in 1115.
