Dedicated to the patron saint to sailors, St Nicholas-at-Wade Church is built of flint and dates to the late 11th Century with much of its completed form finished by the 13th Century with the addition of the chancel, chapels and aisled nave. The SW tower, stair turret and nave, with the decorated porch are other finishes completed by the end of the 14th Century. The north aisle arches are said to have been the inspiration to Pugin when he was designing the Palace of Westminster. It has literary links, with Robert Bridges, Poet Laureate between 1913-30, whose memorial is in the Bridges Chapel.
