Summary Description

Bridge (not mentioned in Domesday Book) has always been part of the parish of Patrixbourne and there has been a chapel on this site in Bridge since 1189, it was enlarged through the 12th and 13th centuries to become a church. As seen today the church is the result of the extensive restoration work undertaken in 1859-60 by architect (Sir) Giles Gilbert Scott, when the external walls were completely refaced with dark knapped flint.
