Dominating the town’s skyline, St Mildred’s Church in Tenterden dates back to the 13 and 14th Centuries, and the tower of the church, a prominent Kentish landmark, was probably built by architect Thomas Stanley. This major building work was undertaken in the middle of the 15th Century, at the height of Tenterden’s prosperity, it being no coincidence that the town gained a charter and Cinque Port status in support of Rye at about the same time. The medieval church has recently undergone significant renovations which include work on its stained glass windows.
