HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: The parish church of St Peter boasts wonderful medieval and Jacobean tombs
Also within the church is a memorial to amateur Victorian archaeologist Benjamin Harrison, a native of Ightham, whose investigations did much to advance popular enthusiasm for expanding our knowledge of prehistory.
The church itself is notable for its use of brick; the entire north aisle was built of brick in 1639. Serious students of historic architecture will note that those early bricks are longer than current standard bricks.
