St Mary's Church, Bexley Village, 1912


St Mary's Church in Bexley Village.

The Church stands on the junction of Manor Road, Bexley High Street and North Cray Road.

Some parts of the church date back to c.1100 and it was the main church for the Manor of Bexley.

The restored medieval lych-gate, which now stands towards the western entrance to the churchyard, originally stood at the main entrance until the late 19th century when it was removed upon construction of the present gateway facing North Cray Road.

Unfortunately its basal timbers there rotted until in 1983 it was dismantled, repaired and re-erected, with the aid of a Council Heritage Fund grant, where it now stands.
