The Church of St. George, Ivychurch

Ivychurch is a sleepy village in the heart of the Romney Marsh. While it may not be awash with amenities, it does offer some interesting sights and historic buildings.

The Church of St.Georges is a true 'Cathedral of the Marsh'. Built in the 13th century, it has a square clock tower and stands proudly in the middle of the village. St.Georges is open to the public and many visitors come to see this great building. Inside the church is a First World War memorial plaque that has very recently been dedicated to commemorate the 7 men lost from the village. Also inside is said to be a tunnel that linked one of the houses in the village to the church during the smuggling era. Around Ivychurch there are numerous walks and footpaths some of which link the various villages that surround it. There are two cycle routes for the Marsh that also go through the village.
