About St Laurence
The first building used for worship
in the Thanet parish of 'St Lawrence' was at St Laurence-in-Thanet -
note the difference in spelling between that of the Village of St
Lawrence and the church. The church was built in 1062 and rebuilt
during the following centuries with the most significant changes being
in the 16th Century. The weights of its four face clock are now wound up by an electrical motor,
this conversion has been done in recent years.Before that is was wound
up by hand every other day; it could be left longer but then it took ages to
wind the 3 weights up.
Where we are
The church is situated on the A 253. If you are coming from Sandwich or
Canterbury area, follow directions to Ramsgate at the Lord of the Manor twin roundabouts.
At the second roundabout, keep left and go up Nethercourt Hill.
As you approach the garage (on the right) you will see the church on the left at the roundabout.
