Ebony Pilgrimage to Chapel Bank
Sunday 4 September 2022
The annual Pilgrimage to Chapel Bank from Ebony Church will take place on Sunday 4th September at 3pm. This year, Bishop Rose will be joining us.
Assemble in Ebony Churchyard (St Mary the Virgin, Ebony - opposite Tenterden Garden Centre) at 3pm. Bring your own picnic. Come and join us for the 63rd pilgrimage up to Chapel Bank, the original church site
St Mary the Virgin Ebony Church is located roughly halfway between Tenterden and Appledore in Kent on the edge of Romney Marsh. The church originally built by Saxons on an island called Chapel Bank in the River Rother estuary to serve the nearby port of Smallhythe. Over the centuries the river’s course was altered and the island became part of the mainland and the port moved to the coast. After lightning and fire the remains of the church were moved by the Victorians and restored.
