I've just had an enjoyable hour or so watching Dr Syn, it's on YouTube at I'm slightly puzzled though, the pews look quite different, for one thing in Dr Syn they are individual pews whereas your photo shows box pews.  Bit difficult to tell though in B&W.

St. Clement it is. Apparently the interior was repainted by the film crew for the film Dr. Syn. How they obtained permission is a mystery.


Over to you John!

If it isn't St Nicholas Church how about St Clement's Church in Old Romney.  I think there's another in the area but can't remember the name.

Small basic structure, probably extended each side.


Box pews (pink :o ) make me think not messed about with later? Therefore remote?


Doesn’t fit any North Downs church I know.


How about out on The Marsh?

Is this a chapel within somewhere like a castle?

This is getting to be too coincidental. A friend of mine took me to see this church a few years ago . I know where it is but as I cant remember the name of the church I will let it ride a while.Give others a chance .
Maybe attract some new guessers.

Another ecclesiastical one, with a very strange colour scheme for an ancient building.

Being a bit of a Beatles fan, I was wondering how I missed John Lennon in the picture, but he was not in the original 🤣

I`ve seen this photo before somewhere. The pillar in the top left corner could be anywhere, but I believe it`s Rochester Cathedral and something connected with the `Beatles`.


Yes, you have it Diapason. It's Rochester Cathedral, although its John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Christmas Eve 1969. The intention was to  join the homeless in a 24 hour sit in  organised by Shelter  but word of mouth ensure hundreds turned up, and with little organisation including police presence the visit was cut short and they supposedly returned to London. Although its since been confirmed they returned later that evening to attend midnight mass.

Ssh Diapason.  Don't upset the east of the county by mentioning the fact that there is a second cathedral in Kent!  ;)

The pillar in the background looks like Canterbury Cathedral?


Was this something to do with a 'Gays Rights' leader (Peter Tatchell) who caused a stir?
