This little church was declared redundant in 1983, but was saved from secular use by the Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust, which now maintains it.
The church was built originally in the 12th century, and grew as the population of the area increased.
The church has interesting roof bosses, an early 16th century wall painting of a ship, and a lead plaque commemorating roof repairs done in 1780 by 'T Apps, carpenter, and all his jolly men'.
Snargate is one of the many Romney Marsh villages associated with smuggling. Some of the tales were set down as stories and poems in the Ingoldsby Legends, supposedly written by Thomas Ingoldsby. In fact they were written by Richard Barham, Vicar of Snargate in the 1820s.
